Wednesday marks the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, the famous civil rights rally where Martin Luther King Jr. called for an end to racism in the United States. The North Carolina NAACP is commemorating this watershed event through rallies held Wednesday evening in thirteen locations across the state—including outside Wilmington’s Thalian Hall.
