Historically, the March on Washington broadened the base of the civil rights movement. The March was not a black action; it was a feat by blacks and whites together, all people. Not just the leaders of the black organizations, but clergy, political leaders, and community spokespeople called for change. UE commemorates the March of Washington through a Symbolic March through campus as a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other civil rights leaders of that time.

11:45 a.m., Symbolic March begins at noon
Fitness Center

Led by the UE Black Student Union
Rally Speakers:
Christopher Pietruszkiewicz, President
LaNeeŅ«a Williams, Chief Diversity Officer
Aaron Cochran, Black Student Union, Outreach Liaison
Keith Turner, John Wesley Minister/Assistant Chaplain/Religious Life
