Some obstacles that arose from this march included hate groups trying to discourage people from attending. Also the current president, Kennedy, seemed to show little interest in the march even though it was having huge success due to overwhelming numbers.
This event will always be remembered because it was one of the largest rallies ever and because of Martin Luther King, with his "I Have A Dream" speech which soon became famous. over 200,000 people attended the march including all races, ages, and economic status which showed that such a diverse crowd can fight for the same thing.
