U of L Planning March to Commemorate 1963 Event

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Students, faculty and staff at the University of Louisville will take part in a commemorative march across campus in honor of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

The march will take place Aug. 28, the date of the 1963 march where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech.

Delivering the keynote address after the march will be Raoul Cunningham, the president of the Louisville chapter of the NAACP. Cunningham attended the 1963 march.

In addition to the march and Cunningham's address, other events will include a panel discussion reflecting on King's speech, music by U of L's International Jazz Quartet, choral music and a recitation of King's speech.
