Martin Luther King Jr

Their was a list of people that were to talk, and or sing at the march.

Martin Luther King Jr, was remembered most because of his speech "I had a dream." Actually, he wasn't even supposed to go that day. He had to last minute because no one wanted to go, they all thought the press wouldn't be there for the last person/event.

Result Of the protest

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was later passed, which outlawed discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

It also helped pass the Voting rights act of 1965, that allowed everyone to vote. (In this case colored people)

Assessment Question

The participants demonstrated their belief system by being peaceful. They marched and held posters saying that they want their rights. They wouldn't stop until they did get their rights, and marched on.
