In 1963, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom saw the Washington Mall in D.C. filled with 250,000 demonstrators. More than a few had their young kids in tow. They wanted them to experience the historic event, which featured Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, “I Have a Dream” speech.

Today’s young parents are raising the next generation of freedom fighters.
