The 60th Anniversary of the Birth of Dr: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is fast approaching, and this year, the country’s first-ever civil rights march in Washington, DC, is set to be one of the biggest in U.S. history.

Martin Luther King, Jr. gave the famous “I Have a Dream” speech, inspiring millions of Americans across the country to rise up against racial injustice.
The day after his speech, a violent protest against the assassination of Dr King broke out in New York City, with thousands of police officers attacking demonstrators.
King’s wife, Coretta Scott King, was among those killed in the attack, and King was assassinated by police after his peaceful protest was interrupted by the NYPD.
In 2017, Dr King’s birthday marks the 60 years since he became a civil rights activist and became the first African American president of the United States.
This year marks the 50th anniversary, and organizers are urging participants to show up to the march as if they’re part of the movement for racial justice.
“Dr. King was the most important leader we’ve ever had on this planet, and he was the first to see what the Black lives mattered,” said Dr. Ben Carson, the Republican presidential candidate and a former doctor.
“This is the time to make it clear that we are a movement of the people, and we are going to be here all year long, regardless of who is elected president.”
The march, which kicks off on April 21 in the Capitol rotunda, is scheduled to be the largest event on the nation’s capital.
There are plans to hold a concert on April 25, a march for women’s rights on April 27, a women’s march on April 29, and a rally for peace on April 30.
Here are the highlights of what you can expect to see at the march:The march will feature the participation of hundreds of people, including clergy and religious leaders, students, community leaders, and civil rights leaders.
The marches will also include speeches by prominent civil rights activists such as Martin Luther Lewis, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and Rev. Jesse Jackson.
There will also be rallies, speeches, performances, and more.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the march is slated to draw more than 100,000 people to the Capitol.
The Washington D.C. Police Department is hosting the march, and it will take place in conjunction with the March for Science.
It is also being sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Association of Black Journalists, the League of United Latin American Citizens, and the National Urban League.
Organizers have promised that the march will be peaceful.
“We’re committed to ensuring that all marchers are respectful, and that everyone who wants to march has a right to do so,” organizers wrote in a Facebook post.
“It is not acceptable to target or harass anyone for their beliefs or beliefs of any other.”
