New today (and yesterday) from the Century:
- John Buchanan on the March on Washington: "I wanted to join a group of pastors going to the March on Washington. But I had young children and no money for bus fare and meals, so I didn’t. I've rued it ever since." (subscription required)
- From the archives, the Century's coverage of the march: "'Integrate the integration march!' said the headline. The editors joined the NCC and others in calling for '40,000 white churchmen' to participate in the March on Washington."
- James Calvin Schaap on the forgiveness white Christians need: "People said my father was a saint. But I remember what he thought about Martin Luther King."
