March on Washington Pennant, 1963
Hyman Bookbinder, lobbyist for the AFL-CIO and later the American Jewish Committee, carried this pennant in the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Over 250,000 people attended the massive civil rights march and rally, which closed with the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.’s now famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
