Yesterday, I posted about how each week at
Cedar Ridge Academy Co-ed Therapeutic Boarding School, certified teachers hold classes that focus on pertinent academic
activities that help students to become more engaged in their rigorous curriculum and assist them in their academic development. Yesterday, I posted
about what the Social Studies class did this week and promised reflections from
students about the March on Washington
and Martin Luther King’s speech. Below are the responses from four students in my World
I think that the speech was good in that it worked just fine considering our positions today. I don’t think that the speech would have been impactful if he would not have been assassinated. I think that the event was pretty cool considering how many people were at the Lincoln Memorial. But that is just my opinion; I think that it was cool that he altered the speech.
In my mind, the March and the Speech were really successful because the March helped protest for more of the minimum wage they get and more of like them getting the same rights as everyone else and the speech. Also, helped get the wants/needs through to the government and the speech was successful because of the fact that basically everyone in the crowd agreed with the speech itself.

about the March on Washington
I believe that marching on
Washington was very important to happen,
because it was a history changer for the best of the African American
race. If this speech did not happen,
things might not have been a lot different now.
The speech was definitely successful, because how much ore equality
there is now then how it was then.
