Don Quayle was one of the prime movers behind the Educational Radio Network’s broadcast of the March, and says it was a grand success, but also “a traumatic experience” for him, personally. In 1963, Mr. Quayle was Manager of WGBH-FM in Boston, and one of the founders of the Educational Radio Network. He was interviewed in Bethesda, Maryland on March 8, 2011.

Interview with Don Quayle

Series Description

Educational Radio Network coverage of the 8/28/1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

The 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom featured an estimated 250,000 peaceful demonstrators walking from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial to hear a political call to arms for economic equality and civil rights for African Americans. Credited with being the final impetus to the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the event famously ended with Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech.
