Anniversary of the March on Washington

National March on Washington

The March on Washington has been credited as the landmark event that led to the passage of the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts, respectively. On that day thousands of people gathered in a peaceful protest as a direct response to the socio-economic disparities that minorities endured. This demonstration catapulted the issues of accessibility for African-Americans to forefront. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington which has become a vital part of our history. Avoice is deeply committed to capturing and preserving this historic moment in DC, and becoming a more active participant in the local community.
Avoice is collaboratIng with Busboys & Poets and the DC Poetry Festival to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The art of spoken word/poetry has transformed into a method of preserving oral history for generations. The main idea would be to encourage poets and spoken word artists in the Capital Area to perform pieces that highlight the importance of March on Washington, then and now. Avoice provided excerpts and other historical resources to set the tone during open mic nights throughout the month of August at several locations of the Busboys & Poets restaurants. On August 28, Busboys will host a themed open mic night focused on civil rights .One poet will also be invited to share their work publically at the 12thAnnual DC Poetry Festival.
