The March on Washington for Jobs an Freedom (aka The March) in August 1963 was to become one of the most important moments in contemporary history. It was the moment when one of the world's greatest leaders spoke - carrying the hopes and dreams of millions of disenfranchised American People; those who had faced two centuries of injustice were about to stand up for their Human Rights. This will be a documentary about a moment when the President of the United States feared a demonstration happening and the then director of America's internal secret service agency tried to sabotage the lead up. And it will recount the events when 250,000 people from across a continent came together to form the largest demonstration the young American democracy had ever seen and freed themselves from the shackles of history.
