In 1963, thousands marched on Washington, D.C., asking for equal civil rights. MU student Roger Qi said that today, he would march in protest of modern day slavery and for better health care.
Since the "I Have A Dream" speech 50 years ago, people have stood up for topics as diverse as animal rights, energy dependence, marriage equality, education and gun rights.
