March On Washington

Martin Luther King

In 1963, more then 200,000 men and woman, colored and white, went to march for what they thought was right.

200,000 people marching on washington

All these people were trying to make America a great and equal place to live for all people. Martin Luther, and the big six, A. Philip Randolph, Whitney M. Young Jr., Martin Luther King Jr., James Farmer, Roy Wilkins and John Lewis were all at the march to support the cause.

Everyone knows about the march

Even though the rest of the country was pushing them down and trying to keep them down, the people were strong and never gave up. And now those people have made America a better country to live in for all.

This movement is similar to the gay rights movement that is going on now. Many people think that it is not right that people think that just because they think something is not right they need others to feel the same.
