Getty Releases ‘This Is The Day: The March On Washington’

Marking the 50th anniversary of the The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, Getty is releasing the works of Leonard Freed.  Of the 75 image collection chosen from the hundreds of photographs he took during the March and extending throughout the civil rights movement, most of them never been previously published.

The book will launch on Feb 5th at the Library of Congress’ Center for the Book for their Books & Beyond program.

I hope you take this day to think about the sacrifices and the courage the people in this photo made, and the men and women in our country that fought for dignity, respect, and equality with their words and with their presence.  May we all continue to fight for what is right, every single day.
