The Obama administration and The Huffington Post are partnering to create a weblog marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Senior officials such as Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. will contribute to The Huffington Post blog created to mark the occasion, National Review Online reported.

All posts authored by administration officials feature a Huffington Post disclaimer that reads, “This blog post is part of a series produced by the Obama Administration, in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington.”

President Obama will speak Wednesday on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on the 50th anniversary of the march.

Mr. Holder wrote the inaugural entry in The Huffington Post series over the weekend, arguing that the fight for civil rights will not be won “until every eligible American has the chance to exercise his or her right to vote, unencumbered by discriminatory or unneeded procedures, rules or practices.”
