The Biggest Protest March in History. In recognition of the significance of the March Washington, this month's cover features some of the estimated 250,000 participants of the already historic event. Fittingly, the nation's largest rights pilgrimage also provided EBONY with the largest number of persons ever to appear on its cover. The cover represents part of a unique mass undertaking by the entire Johnson Publishing Company photo staff, which was on hand to capture many unforgettable moments of the gigantic event.
