*Oprah Winfrey, Jamie Foxx and Forest Whitaker will join President Barack Obama and former chief executives Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter at the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday to mark the 50th anniversary of one of the Civil Rights Movement’s most memorable moments — the March on Washington.
Georgia Representative John Lewis, now one of the Democrats’ congressional elders but then an aide to King, will address the commemoration as he did the original march.
Soledad O’Brien and Hill Harper will host the anniversary celebration, whose title is “Let Freedom Ring.”
Wednesday’s commemoration will feature musical performances by LeAnn Rimes and Bebe Winans. Folk singers Peter, Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez sang at the march half a century ago.
Winfrey and Whitaker are starring in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” a movie about a man who served seven presidents as a White House butler.
