Justin Weber, a D.C. activist working with Showing Up for Racial Justice, says that his group and Black Lives Matter protesters have been working to block the security checkpoint on Fourth and C Streets NW. “We are here in support of our black and brown brothers and sisters,” Weber said. “We plan to be here for a little while now, because we pretty effectively shutdown the checkpoint.”
The Washington march and the Black Lives Matter protest were both held in Washington . Black Lives Matter and the March on Washington both showed what they believed was right because they believed that they system was discriminating against African Americans. They were different because of the time period and for the March on Washington there life was in danger and they were willing to take the risk of losing their life for there fellow African Americans.
The impact March on Washington has on our lives today is that they give African Americans equal rights as White Americans. The education systems are desegregated. It's illegal for a job to reject you because of your race, religion, and etc. Besides, Less than a year after the March on Washington was held, the Civil Rights Act was passed banning all discrimination against all colors.
