PROJECT: The March, University of Oregon

The March (themarch.uoregon.edu) is a digital exhibition contextualizing James Blue’s documentary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom with archival materials and oral histories. It “presents one version of James Blue’s film with other primary resources relating to its creation and reception. Over a period of about five months, at least 16 people contributed their time and expertise to this project.”

In addition to serving as a valuable educational resource, dh+lib readers may refer to The March’s companion Project Summary Report as a helpful example of public-facing documentation, which includes the project timeline, primary source collections and technology stacks used, and lists contributors that brought the project to fruition.
