CARY, NC, August 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- People are exploring the legacy and dream of the March on Washington 50 years later through a multimedia initiative powered by Senior Correspondent.---
On Aug. 28, 1963, more than 250,000 people gathered in Washington, D.C., for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. As the fiftieth anniversary of the march approaches, discussion and dialogue about race relations continue to shape society today.
Using an immersive collection of reflections, articles, photos and other multimedia content, Senior Correspondent is diving into the stories of people who attended the march in order to explore ongoing dialogue about race relations at http://www.seniorcorrespondent.com/march.
Current Senior Correspondent writers are already exploring the impact of the march. In his article "'Which Side Are You On?' Lives On," Thomas Goldsmith explores the relationship between music and the march. Paul Gilster investigates the use of technology in protests in his article, "Protest Technology," and Bernd Debusmann's "Racial Discrimination — An American Problem Forever?" questions the state of race relations today.
Senior Correspondent, an award-winning online media venture driven entirely by the stories of older adults, was created in 2010 by Signal Hill, a Cary-based leadership and communications consultancy.
"Current events like the Moral Monday demonstrations and the Zimmerman trial demonstrate how public dialogue about the role of race in society is changing today," says Cathy Gordon, multimedia producer for Signal Hill. "But to look forward, we think it's important to first look back. The March on Washington changed us forever, and we think people have powerful stories to share about those experiences."
Stories, photos and videos can be submitted at http://www.seniorcorrespondent.com/march. For more information on Senior Correspondent's March on Washington anniversary coverage, contact Cathy Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Senior Correspondent is an award-winning storytelling initiative where older adults deliver unique perspectives on politics, arts, travel, health, technology, money and work.
