POLITICS 2 Civil rights events Civil rights events can be traced all the way back to the 1940s. One of the most notable civil rights events was the Washington March, which happened on August 28, 1963 (Jones, 2013). The march brought together the biggest civil rights organizations in the country. At first, the march was expected to be full of violence and unrest. However, it turned to be the largest peaceful march that Washington had even seen at that time. The black civil rights organizations were pushing for the passage of proper civil rights laws, protection against police brutality, and the need to end segregation in public schools. Martin Luther King gave the “I have a Dream” in this event that received extensive live TV coverage. It was a day to be remembered as the crowds participated in peaceful protests. The Washington march was an inspiration for many other civil rights events like the million march to Washington. The march was considered success because it had a role to play in the ratification of the Twenty-fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The amendment removed the poll tax, which was put in place to keep poor African Americans from voting.
