50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

Recently thousands of civil rights activists and supporters commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington where Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. Every student in America has learned about this man and his iconic speech. About the impact that it had on the spirits of African Americans and other minorities who’s civil liberties were being repressed. We celebrate this mans life every year during Martin Luther King Jr day. 

Some people are actually upset for people marching on Washington to celebrate this mans dreams and accomplishments. Why would they? He set the foundation for the push for civil liberties for all no matter of race or color or ethnicity.
