ABSTRACT
The article reports on developments in Washington, DC. The original goal of the organizers of the protest march was to impress upon legislators the need and the desire of the African American community for legislative remedies. While the legislators planned to keep the marchers away from the Capitol, the planners of the march have actually decided that the Lincoln Memorial was more appropriate.
