August 29, 2013 – The Shaw University Student Government Association (SGA) hosted a "Peace Walk" in honor of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King's momentous "I Have a Dream" speech on August 29, 2013. More than 100 students walked from Shaw’s campus to the State Capitol in downtown Raleigh. Before departing, they shared history about downtown Raleigh and the role that Shaw University played in helping young, African-American students fight for their civil rights.
