The United States promised freedom and equality to African-Americans after the Civil War ended in 1865. But for decades there was just a shadow form of citizenship for most of them. Laws separated the races and treated African-Americans unfairly. African-Americans traveled to Northern cities looking for opportunity and freedom.

The leaders in that march were Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and Thurgood Marshall.\
