ESSENCE Poll: How Will You Commemorate the March on Washington?

Comments
Thousands descended on the National Mall to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.

Fifty years ago today, 250,000 brave men and women just like you and me took to Washington to express their "dream" of a world free of racial discrimination. They also marched for jobs and economic parity. In their simple act, those men and women set the tone for a new America and inspired generations to come.

Today, as President Obama and thousands more take to Washington to reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream, we want to know how you will be remembering that historic day. Share your thoughts and comments with us below.
