The Great March On Washington – one of the most significant recordings made during the civil rights movement of the 1960s – is now available as a digital release for the first time. Released by Motown Records/Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), The Great March can be purchased / streamed HERE.
This historic release was recorded on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., on August 23, 1963, during the March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom, a.k.a. “The Great March on Washington.” Rush-released by Motown Records as a complete album in October 1963, the recording culminates with Martin Luther King, Jr.’s iconic “I Have A Dream” speech.
Ethiopia Habtemariam, President of Motown Records and Executive Vice President of Capitol Records, recently spoke with Elvis Mitchell – host of KCRW’s “The Treatment” – about what Dr. King’s speeches mean to her. View their conversation HERE.
Coinciding with the digital release of the album, TIME and executive producer Viola Davis invite the public to step back into history with THE MARCH – a groundbreaking VR museum exhibit that recreates the March on Washington and allows visitors to witness firsthand the “I Have a Dream” speech. The immersive experience utilizes original audio from Motown. TIME said, “King’s clarion voice carries without the distracting echo picked up by inferior attempts to capture it. Spectators on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial chime in audibly as King proceeds…making listeners feel as if they’re 10 ft. from the podium.” The exhibit at the Dusable Museum of African American History in Chicago will run through November 2020. Additional exhibit locations will be announced. For details and tickets, visit https://time.com/the-march/
