Picture 52 - Office Still Life
(Pic 52/365)

The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was a significant event that changed American History. On that fateful day, August 28, 1963, activist Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech that made an impression to the hearts of many. It also made a major impact in government laws and regulations. On July 2, 1964, the Civil Rights Act was enacted by the government prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin by the federal and state governments.

I am privileged to work in the business world today void* of discrimination based on pay, gender, and race because of numerous events from the 1960's, including Martin Luther King, Jr.'s non-violent philosophy on equality and change. 


* Realistically, there will always be pay, gender, and race discrimination in the work place - however it's difficult to detect and prove. Nonetheless, the circumstance has improved significantly since the 50's and the 60's so we should be grateful for that.
