The 50th Anniversary March on Washington

The March that was held in August 28, 1963 was one of the largest political rallies for the Human rights in the United States history. The March was organized by a group of civil rights, labor, and religious organizations, under the theme “Jobs and Freedom.” And this was the day Martin Luther King, Jr. Spoke in front of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his historic. “ I have a Dream” speech.

The “March for Jobs and Justice” took place August 28, 2013. This was an event that I was more than excited to attend, Not because it was the right thing to do; but for the positive and powerful history behind it. It started early morning around 8 am. We all met up at the Lincoln Memorial the same place where Martin Luther King spoke to wait for our leaders of today to speak.

It was very empowering for someone my age. It wasn’t just a walk for African Americans, but for every minority that is struggling And trying to make it. Being aware of how high the unemployment rates were and also the unlawful crimes was bothersome, But important for us to know what’s going on in our world. This day made history, because after all of these years we are still fighting For justice and to all be equal. This was a day that I couldn’t miss out on and hopefully we “The People” can have more positive Movements like this again.
