MLK 50th Ann graphic-CBCFifty years ago, some 250,000 people — young and old, rich and poor, black and white — marched to the Lincoln Memorial in a show of support for the burgeoning civil rights movement.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream speech” riveted the crowd. But others, like Hollywood actor Burt Lancaster and folk singer Bob Dylan, also had something to say on that day.

The Canadian Broadcast Network put together an interactive page on which you can see videos and descriptions describing the March’s effect on 50 different types of people.
