The March on Washington was where black people didn't have job and freedom. King was forced to give his speech last for two reasons he was black and that most of the camera crews would be gone, but they didn't leave when it was "Kings " turn. Once "King" gave his speech people start to realize it doesn't matter what color you are, what matters is that your a nice person. After the speech some white people stated treating blacks nicer. It put the idea of treating black people into everyones mind. An cool fact is that Martin Luther King Jr. and Jackie Robinson were good friends.
