As the nation marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, the PBS NewsHour prepares to make some history of its own.

Tonight, Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 7 p.m., Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff will sit down with President Barack Obama. The duo will talk to the president in the White House, soon after he delivers a speech at the Lincoln Memorial that commemorates Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Watch it tonight on WXXI-TV.

Mr. Obama will reflect on civil rights and economic opportunity in America five decades after the March on Washington, as well as on the news of the day, as tensions continue to flare up in Syria.
