Leonard Freed: This Is the Day

The March on Washington, 1963

‘This Is the Day: The March on Washington’ was published by Getty Publications to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the march. Magnum photographer Leonard Freed (1929-2006) traveled to Washington that day and photographed the event that culminated in Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech.

‘Black in White America,’ an exhibition of Freed’s work, is on now through February 22nd, 2014, at the Leica Gallery in Soho, New York.
