Throughout the United States and the world, powerful and notable contributions have been made by African Americans/Blacks.
Events such as the 1966 March Against Fear, encouraging voting rights for Blacks/African Americans, the March On Washington, in 1941, advancing economic and civil rights for African Americans/Blacks, and the March On Washington in 1963 where "I Have a Dream" resonated from the Lincoln Memorial - these events would not have graced the world had it not been for such legends as James Meredith, A. Philip Randolph, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Many great heroes, along with many great heroines, pioneered advancements for all Americans. Through much perseverance and unparalleled determination, African Americans/Blacks have fought for the freedoms and civil rights of all people. Legends such as Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey stayed the course through storms of racism, bigotry, and degradation to help bring many to the other side, to a life of dignity and equality.
