Martin Luther KIng Jr. March

Changing lives for Africans Americans and Minorities

African Americans lives changed by showing that there was hope, belief in the democratic process, and faith in the ability of black and whites for racial equality. Also the minority groups thought that it showed that no matter who you are everyone deserves and equality among each others regardless of skin color.

Working Together

Whites acted against this act while mostly blacks and minority groups supported this march. Then that's when the NAACP ( National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference put aside their long standing rivalry, black and white groups across the country were urged to attend, and make sure that it was a grateful event.
Even though great leaders such as President John F. Kennedy and Roosevelt showed very little enthusiasm. All black leaders knew that that they would not be ignored by anyone.
