Watch Episode 1 | Jobs on PBS. See more from The March @50.

The 1963 March on Washington was billed as a march for “Jobs and Freedom.” In the first installment of the Web series The March @50, filmmaker Shukree Tilghman asks if America has delivered on the marchers’ demands for more access to employment.

The March @50 is a 5-part web series brought to you by the PBS Black Culture Connection. We’ll be posting subsequent episodes here in the days and weeks to come.
