It was 60 years ago that Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his historic "I Have A Dream" speech.
On Aug. 28, 1963, thousands of Black and white clergy members, labor leaders and activists marched on Washington.
What started as a protest for the rights of workers led to monumental change for the country, including the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
On Saturday, 60 organizations from across the nation are taking to the streets again to commemorate the anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
Led by organizations like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and National Urban League, the Saturday march comes as advocates say democracy is under threat and hate crimes continue.
The Rev. Al Sharpton joined host Errol Louis on "Inside City Hall" Tuesday night to talk more about the anniversary of the March on Washington.
"We need to not commemorate. We need to continue, and have Blacks and Jews and Muslims and gays and LGBTQ community come together and join together and like they did in 1963 across racial and religious lines. We need to come together and resist," Sharpton said.
"What they're rolling back, whether it's affirmative action, whether it's antisemitism, whether it's women's right to choose, it's the things that was gained in the last 60 years. We must fight," he added.
