From the NBC Archives: In this archival footage you’ll get to see Martin Luther King Jr. and civil rights activist Roy Wilkins on NBC’s Meet The Press discussing the historic 1963 March on Washington. Mr. Wilkins and Dr. King reassure the country that there will be no violence in D.C. during the march because it is a non-violent protest. Dr. King would deliver his now famous “I Have A Dream Speech” at that march.
