Biddle Presents: Our Sessions at the 43rd AAAED Conference

American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity (AAAED) – 43rd National Conference

Please join us for our 43rd national conference and annual meeting to be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, June 7-9, 2017.  Scottsdale is a beautiful location, with the Sonoran Desert as its backdrop and a watercolor sky as its canopy. It also lies within a state rich in Native American tradition, and we have embraced that tradition with our conference theme, “We are known by the tracks that we leave.”  Our theme recognizes the importance of ensuring that we are developing and leaving a more diverse and inclusive legacy than we found.  Our robust pre-conference and conference programs are designed to lay the “tracks” for the challenges and opportunities to promote access, equity and diversity both now and in the future.

50th Anniversary of the March for Jobs and Freedom

March on Washington“…I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…'”

(from I Have a Dream by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

This week marks the 50th Anniversary of the The March for Jobs and Freedom held in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, August 28, 1963. More than 200,000 people from various backgrounds, races and religions gathered to stand together for equal rights. The  3-hour program included singing, prayers and speeches from civil rights leaders. The most inspirational (and now most famous) words of the day came from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he delivered I Have a Dream.

Below is the recently remastered James Blue documentary The March. The film was originally commissioned in 1963 by United States Government to document the historic civil rights march.
