Meet Me at Equality: The People’s March on Washington, a documentary by James A. Rada, associate professor in the Department of Journalism, will screen on Thursday, September 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Park Hall Auditorium. The hour-long program profiles 28 people who participated in The March on Washington on August 28, 1963.

Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion with Rada and a group of Park School student journalists who partnered with NBC Nightly News and PBS Newshour online to cover the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.

Prof. Rada’s documentary was picked up by several PBS affiliates nationwide, and will be broadcast this week to coincide with the anniversary. It will also be available on the PBS website.
