The March on Washington was the climax of the Civil Rights Movement, and the U.S has not forgotten its impact.
This was one of King's final pushes for Civil Rights, and he aimed for the heart of the country, D.C.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." - Martin Luther King Jr.
Everyone has heard King's "I have a dream" speech before, but its impact is broader than just memory. After years of fighting against the oppression of black lives, going to jail multiple times, and having thousands of his fellow African Americans killed in protest, King was able to march through Washington and give his most memorable speech. The purpose of his speech is to both inspire hope and give people something realistic to fight for. "one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character". This idea is the main driving force behind the Civil Rights Movement. The idea that people were not seen as wrong or right based on their skin color, but judged by their actions.
