Marches On Washington Still Making A Difference?
Thousands are expected to attend Rev. Al Sharpton's march for jobs and justice Saturday on the National Mall. The rally is scheduled a day before the dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. The nation's capital has been historically commonplace for hosting marches that express views ranging from women's equality to anti-war and animal rights.
