CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
As the nation celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington this weekend, Johnson C. Smith University is celebrating with a website dedicated to sharing memories of its alumni who lived it.
The March on Washington, which happened on August 28, 1963, was a seminal moment in the fight for Civil Rights in America. The march, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, is widely thought with helping to push through the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Charles Jones of Charlotte, sat in the tenth row during the March on Washington to hear Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. deliver his "I Have a Dream" speech.
Jones was a member of the Freedom Riders whose activism cost him 30 days working on a chain gang in Rock Hill, S.C.
Jones joins more than 20 other Johnson C. Smith University alumni who share their memories of the March on Washington in a new feature on the university's website.
The web feature will go live on August 21 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the March that took place on August 28, 1963.
The website captures more than 20 comments from alumni, some of whom were at the March itself and many others who participated in related Civil Rights Movement events.
In addition to chronicling first-hand accounts by alumni, the feature will also include a timeline of the period and offer information on a free exhibit on the JCSU campus titled: "Courage: The Carolina Story that Changed America."
