    Photograph, b/w. Leaders of the March on Washington lock arms as they move along Constitution Avenue in Washington, D. C. on August 28, 1963. Dr. King is fourth from the left. The March on Washington was organized to lend support to President Kennedy’s proposed civil rights bill and to urge the formation of a desegregated society. Many civil rights groups help to organize the demonstration, including NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), CORE (Congress of Racial Equality), SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference), SNCC (Student Nonviolent Co-ordinating Committee). Over 200,000 people (both black and white, of all ages and from all parts of America) came to Washington to march from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial.
