The March on Washington was a rally in August 28, 1963 which brought together over 200,000 Americans in the fight for Civil Rights. The rally was organized to help people see and understand the bad encounters African Americans faced in their everyday life. “Nevertheless, both marches represented an affirmation of hope, of belief in the democratic process, and of faith in the capacity of blacks and whites to work together for racial equality.” ("March on Washington."

This made people have a emotional breakdown, and it made them feel as if they had to do something for our country. But that urge to do something didn’t really have an effect on the people until The Children’s March in Birmingham in 1963. This march was an extremely dangerous, yet brave march.

The individuals said that they wanted to create peace, they wanted to make a difference and belong to something more important, they wanted to create a different image of what being “black” meant to
