March on Washington

In 1963 African Americans had, had enough and statred the civil rights movement. One of the biggest rallies ever to be held in the U.S. was the March on Washington, where blacks from all over the nation came together to fight for their rights. This was where Martin Luther King gave his "I Have A Dream Speach". This rally wasn't full of hippies, but it still had a group of people fighting for what they believed in.
