Thursday evening, Comcast and NBC10 hosted a reception honoring the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, which culminated in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legendary “I Have a Dream” speech. Nolan Atkinson, Chief Diversity Officer of the Duane Morris Law Group, was the featured speaker, and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter also provided his remarks.

At this event, Comcast premiered His Dream, Our Stories, a multi-platform, interactive experience sharing stories of the Civil Rights Movement and reflecting on other significant events of the time. Through commentary and archived footage, His Dream, Our Stories chronicles the March, the movement, and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through more than 80 interviews. Featured interviews include attendees from the March on Washington, the Detroit Walk to Freedom, and the Selma-Montgomery March; members of the Little Rock Nine; leaders of the Atlanta Student Movement; Dr. King’s closest allies and confidants; and political leaders of the time. Several of our JDC members also were interviewed, including: Marc Morial, Roslyn Brock, Carla Harris, Julianna Richardson, Harold Epps, Sonny Skyhawk, and Mark Segal.
