Martin Luther King was the best person to lead the March on August 23, 1963. He was a leader who sacrificed his whole life for the fair treatment of black people and even died for it.
Women such as Rosa Parks and Claudette Colvin were amazing women who paved the path for lots of civil rights workers. They used bus boycotts to show their individual frustration such as refusing to give up their seat, but people marched in groups as a way to show their group frustration.
