Where were you 50 years ago today?

If you were too young to remember, where were your parents or caregivers? Today marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, D.C. for Jobs and Freedom where Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous "I Have a Dream Speech" on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

And what about the laws that exist today ensuring our Civil Rights and access to Equal Employment?

Don't forget, take a look at our catalog to see what materials can be borrowed about Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.

With your Law Library card, you can access Hein OnLine for law journal articles about Civil Rights and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Don't have a law library card yet? Here's one of many posts that are available on-line commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington D.C. Today is a good day to reflect on where we as a nation have been and what lies ahead on our journey to ensure everyone has access to justice and equal rights.
