Sir Al Franklin's curator insight, January 28, 2015 6:10 PM

We believe that the laws residing to racism have changed for the good in America. However, peoples own individual thoughts and perceptions on other races are still the same. Some people will never be willing to except the ideal of equality. This is troubling because they will continue to pass along these feelings of hatred to other generations to come. its also safe to say that there still some blacks that carry the same views for the events that occurred 52 years ago. The only thing we can hope for is fare treatment along the way.

The title of this post caught our eyes because we were curious to find out another person's perception on how black life changed since the march.  This blogger describes their answer to the title's question. They answer by saying in some aspects there has not been much change in Black life, but overall we've made a great advancement within the Black community since the march. When we read this blog looking for answers we were confused. Overall we understood what was being said and we agree.

In this picture its to show that the struggle that blacks are far from over. The things, like smaller wages and discrimination, may have had some government intervention, but there are still things that are used to hinder blacks like education and work experience.

Race is America's pothole. The thing that's left behind in the wake of a larger more destructive thing. The thing we swerve but can't avoid.
