March on Washington becomes InteractiveBy: Kayla Nelson - August 28, 2013
“I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.”
Powerful words from the civil rights leader and American icon, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King predicted that the March on Washington would go down in history, and it did as well as his famous speech. One could only imagine that even he could not conceive in his wildest dreams, that a dedication to him would be featured on the largest search engine, Google.
With the help of modern technology, you can be apart of history. Just as gains have been made in the advancement of civil rights, technology has progressed as well. Once we used to show our support by marching, today we can show our support by clicking. Thanks to Organic and Google on behalf of the National Parks Foundation, you will be able to join the anniversary of the March on Washington, even if you can’t physically take part in the event. When you visit http://www.wearestillmarching.com/ not only will you will be able to listen to the speech, you will be able to record yourself via the site. Then in a united effort, you will be able to hear yourself among others, who have also recorded themselves reciting words from the historic speech that King delivered fifty years ago today at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Fifty years since that monumental day, your only a screen away; a word away, from joining an epic day where a man and his words changed not only the United States of America, but the world as we know it.
