A group from Lexington will be among the thousands celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

The group left for DC early Friday morning.

More than 200,000 Americans gathered for the political rally in 1963.

It's where Martin Luther King junior delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech, which became a key moment in the struggle for civil rights.

The actual 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington is August 28th.
