Why was the March on Washington so important?

The March on Washington had such an impact on the way things are today. This heroic event took place in spring August 28, 1963 and was the day of freedom and jobs. When Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous I have a dream speech, at least 250,000 people took place at the Washington Monument. I think this event had such an impact on people because now people don't judge by the color of their skin and now African Americans have more freedom. After the March white people could go to school with African Americans and be friends with them as well. And I guess you could say the March really paid off.
