Today marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The march saw between 200,000 and 300,000 people converge on the Washtington Mall in front of the Lincoln Memorial where a parade of speakers representing multiple races and religions advocated for civility and equalty through prayers and speeches  and hoped to rally support for President Kennedy's proposed Civil Rights legislation.
