Did you participate in the March on Washington 50 years ago on Aug. 28, 1963, when the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial? This march for jobs and freedom was one of the largest political rallies for human rights in U.S. history.

We're looking to our readers to write about their experiences at this march, as well as publish photos they may have from this event. We will be running these essays and photos at the end of August to coincide with the 50th anniversary.

Please send essays of about 250 words by email to magazine@post-gazette.com (include March on Washington in the subject line) or by letter to Virginia Linn, Features Department, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 34 Blvd. of the Allies, Pittsburgh PA 15222. Include your name, address (with city neighborhood or suburban community) and daytime telephone number. Writers' names and towns/neighborhoods (not full addresses) will appear with published essays.

If you have questions, call L.A. Johnson at 412-263-3903. Deadline for submission is Friday, Aug. 9.
