Analysis

After you examine all of the sources in this Document Study answer the following questions:

  1. Civil Rights activists used many different tactics to effect change. What are the various ways you think a march can impact a movement? What do you think was effective and/or not effective about the March on Washington, from what you've learned thus far?
  2. Using all the evidence provided by the documents you examined and your discussion so far, make a list of the goals/purposes of the March on Washington reflected in these documents. (There were other central goals, such as advocating for the passage of the Civil Rights Act, that are not reflected in your packet.)
  3. How might some of these goals be competing? How do you think the organizers of the March might have dealt with the fact that there were several agendas for the event?
