Live streaming tour from the Lincoln Memorial and West Potomac Park

Since it's completion in 1922, the Abraham Lincoln Memorial has been the backdrop of some of the most pivotal points in civil rights history. On this live virtual tour we'll walk in the steps of Dr. Robert Moton (the only African-American to speak at the memorials dedication), the lower mezzanine where Marianne Anderson gave her iconic Easter Sunday concert in 1939, and the spot where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his iconic speech.

This is a Live Virtual Tour delivered personally and live by me using 'live video conferencing software'
