The march is credited with helping to create the Civil Rights Act & the Voting Rights Act for African-Americans. It was a huge rally for human rights & attended by over 200,000 people. People marched together in peace & in solidarity to take a stand against prejudice & racial injustice.
Although many battles have been fought & won along the same lines since then, prejudice, discrimination, poverty, oppression & injustice still permeate our society. As we remember, let's not forget the declaration, "...All men are created equal...all men have the right to life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness..."
