20th Anniversary March: 1983
The 20th Anniversary march of the historic 1963 March for Jobs and Freedom.

The 1983 march kept the original demands, but added peace to its list.

Speakers repeatedly called for a new coalition and many of the participants would go on to be part of Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition that helped his ultimately unsuccessful efforts to become the Democratic presidential nominee in 1984 and 1988.
