Recapping the march on Washington

The As­so­ci­ated Press’ story, run by the Los Angeles Times the day after the march, in­ter­est­ingly doesn’t reach what is now re­membered as the de­fin­ing mo­ment of the day, Mar­tin Luth­er King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, un­til the 10th para­graph. Tak­ing pre­ced­ence were Pres­id­ent John F. Kennedy’s re­sponse, a re­port on the weath­er and a tally of those treated at first aid tents.
