This Twitter Feed is Live Tweeting the March on Washington Events As They Occurred in 1963

“‘You could call me a combination freedom rider and tourist on this trip,’ a protester tells Frank Powledge of the NYTimes.”

It has been exactly fifty years since Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. In memoriam of the event, NPR’s Code Switch created a Twitter feed to share, as if in real time, what’s being uncovered during the day of the March on Washington. So if you want to learn about the day, minute-by-minute, follow the Twitter account here.  Let’s hope the 140-character posts can do it justice (no pun intended).
