March on Washington 2020
Thousands gathered in Washington DC to mark the anniversary of the 1963 civil rights March on Washington and to call for social justice. Civil rights and political leaders addressed the crowd, along with the son and grand-daughter of Martin Luther King nd the families of black victims of police violence.
Also in the programme: why Russia has fired one of its most outspoken campaigners against banned drugs, and a priceless German autograph book from the 17th century.
