NAACP chapter offers buses to Washington Event salutes march of 1963

August 27, 1993

The Howard County NAACP plans to take 100 people to the 30th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington tomorrow.

The Rev. Bowyer G. Freeman, president of the county branch, was too young to attend the 1963 march but says he's looking forward to attending this one.

Mr. Freeman said the focus of this year's march will be on economic empowerment.

The original march was billed as a "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom."

Two buses will leave at 8 a.m. from the First Baptist Church, 7504 Oakland Mills Road in Guilford.

Anyone wanting to join the local NAACP on the march may do so for free, but must call the office at (410) 792-3706 to reserve a seat.
