Going back to school can bring up lots of emotions. For me, it made me alternately excited to see my friends and learn new things, but also nervous about what changes the new year would bring.

The 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom represents a pivotal event in the American Civil Rights Movement. By the 1960s, racial, social and economic unrest had reached a boiling point.
