Video of the 1963 March on Washington restored

Posted: Updated:

To mark this important anniversary, the National Archives Film Preservation Lab completed a full digital restoration of the James Blue's 1964 film, The March, produced for the U.S. Information Agency. Using Blue's original negatives, staff restored defects in the image and enhanced the audio track - a process that took more than three months. The March documents the event from its preparations through Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. (40 minutes.)

The newly restored version will be posted on the National Archives YouTube channel on August 26. Use of the film may require permission from the King Foundation, due to the rights claimed by the King Family for the use of King's image and the copyright on the "I Have a Dream Speech."
