March on Washington Ashley Herold

IN 1963, ON AUGUST 28TH THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE GATHERED IN WASHINGTON DC FOR A POLITICAL RALLY TO GAIN FREEDOM AND JOBS. MARTIN LUTHER WAS THE FACE BEHIND THE WHOLE OPERATION. THE KING WENT DOWN IN HISTORY FOR DRAMATIZING THE ENTIRE BLACK AMERICANS RIGHT TO POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC EQUALITY. AS BLACKS FACED DISCRIMINATION, THEY NO LONGER COULD STAY QUITE.

MLK SHOWED HIS PEOPLE THAT DISCRIMINATION IS SOMETHING THAT WILL BE OVERCOME. IT MAY NOT BE THAT DAY BUT IT WILL HAPPEN. HIS "I HAVE A DREAM" SPEECH IS THE LEGACY THAT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. IT'S IMPACT WAS SO HUGE IT IS NOW THE ASPIRATION OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.

A QUARTER MILLION PEOPLE GATHER TO SUPPORT CIVIL RIGHTS AND SHARE DR. KINGS "DREAM" OF EQUALITY.

WOMENS MARCH

MAY DAY WAS USED TO KEEP THE INJUSTICE GOING AND GET A WORLDWIDE PROTEST FOR WOMEN'S RIGHTS. SIMILARITIES BETWEEN EACH MARCH WOULD BE TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT THERE IN A BOLD WAY AND SHOW NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT GENDER YOU ARE THAT EVERYONE MATTERS.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE STAND TOGETHER TO REACH THEIR GOAL FOR PROTECTION OF OUR RIGHTS, OUR SAFETY, OUR HEALTH AND OUR FAMILIES TO COME IN THE FUTURE. TO HELP RECOGNIZE THAT THE DIVERSITY IN OUR COMMUNITIES ARE THE STRENGTH OF OUR COUNTRY.
TRUMP, NOW TODAYS PRESIDENT, DECIDED TO GO OUT OF THE WAY AND IGNORE THE MARCH. THEY DIDN'T NEED HIS SUPPORT BECAUSE LITTLE DOES HE KNOW THEY WON'T SUPPORT HIM EITHER. BUT HILARY ATE OFF OF TRUMP'S MISTAKE AND DECIDED TO JOIN IN BY TWEETING OUT HER SUPPORT.
