Voting Rights Act, Immigration Reform on the Agenda for 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

Race relations problems in the United States were brought to the attention of the nation, and the world, by the massive March on Washington, Sept. 6, 1963. As evidenced by the signs held by the marchers, some of these problems are in the field of housing, voting, schooling and employment. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy said, "An awful lot has been accomplished. But you have to look at this in context - an awful lot still remains to be done."
