March on Washington

On August 28, 1963 more than 200,000 people gathered in Washington, DC. People protested and marched for the freedom of African Americans. This march was one of the biggest protests of all time. It made people look at African Americans in many different ways.

Segregation

In 1963 many whites thought they were superior to the African American people. Whites ban Black music from the radios. The phrase "Separete but equal" was put into place but didn't really mean much because whites got a better life then blacks. They were seprated from almost everything to buses, bathrooms, resturaunts, water fountains, schools, and whites got better jobs and education.
