In honor of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, NBC News has rebroadcast its 1963 “Meet the Press” program from just before the march featuring an interview of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Three days before the Aug. 28, 1963, march, King appeared on “Meet the Press” alongside Roy Wilkins, head of the NAACP.

The March on Washington was one of the largest political rallies for human rights in U.S. history, with more than 250,000 people gathering on the National Mall, advocating for civil and economic rights for African Americans. 

The special edition of “Meet the Press” titled “Remembering the Dream” featuring the full half-hour interview aired at 10 a.m. EDT in the New York area.

If you missed the broadcast, NBC posted the video online as well. Watch video clips from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his interview three days before the March on Washington here.
