Remember the March on Washington

As we remember the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom of 1963, it’s critical not to whitewash this history. Contextualize the campaign and the struggle associated with it, including the impact of the march’s organizer, Bayard Rustin—an openly gay Black man. That also includes complicating the event’s most iconic figure, Dr. Martin Luther King, and his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. These resources can help.

Recognize Trailblazers on Women’s Equality Day

Women’s Equality Day commemorates the ratification of the 19th Amendment on Aug. 26, 1920. It’s important to remember that many Black women and more women of color didn’t earn the right to vote until years later. Read Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a Woman?” with its intersectional message delivered during her 1851 speech at the Women’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. Also, check out an LFJ lesson featuring an accurate voting rights timeline, and identify ways to take a deeper look at women’s history this Women’s Equality Day—and beyond.
