On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King gave his famous "I have a dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial. It was part of a larger march on Washington in support of the civil rights bill that was pending in Congress. 200- 250,000 people marched in support.
According to the 1960 census, the population of the US at the time was about 178 million. The marchers constituted less just over 1/10 of 1% of the population. More people went to see The Great Escape that week than participated in the march.
What a bunch of useless losers! Right, Ken?
