Documentary On The March

When I was watching this documentary on the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, I saw how really bad things were way back then. The marches started in Montgomery when a black boy  riding a bike was pulled over by a cop & was castrated. Back then teenagers were trying to save the movement.

The day of the march people were unsure if folks were going to show up. They didn’t have any way to contact each other or anything like that… Around 8 or 10 people had started to show up, then about 40,000 people were at the starting point of the march. As Martin Luther King Jr. spoke he said “I have a dream my 4 children will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
