The march, which became a key moment in the growing struggle for civil rights in the United States, culminated in Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, a spirited call for racial justice and equality. This march also included speeches and performances from John Lewis, Josephine Baker, Mahalia Jackson, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan.
Currently in our country there has been many marches and riots for the "Black lives Matter" organization standing up against all the racial discrimination that has come back to light to this extreme since the 1960's. Just recently, around 2,000 people gathered Saturday night at Seattle Central for a Black Lives Matter protest that ended up covering a lot of mileage and a lot of issues with stops at a number of sites around Capitol Hill and the Central District including the East Precinct, the county’s youth jail facility, and a troubled property on the backside of 23rd Ave’s Midtown Center. People have not stopped fighting for their rights and they won't until they feel they are treated as equal as everyone else.
