The 1963 March on Washington was a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement. More than 250,000 people joined in peaceful demonstration for racial and economic equality. Their clarion call helped usher in sweeping civil rights legislation and a sea change in public opinion, and the event endures today as a symbol of unity and monumental impact.
