2. John F. Kennedy, Josephine Baker, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mahalia Jackson, Martin Luther King Jr.
3.MLK Jr. was the last speaker that afternoon, but not because he chose to be. King only spoke last because he wanted to. When organizers at the march debated who would speak and how long, none of the other speakers wanted the last slot, because they figured most of the news crews would head out by mid-afternoon. MLK agreed to go last and to limit his remarks to 4 minutes. He didn't have to worry about not making it on the news, the audience gladly stuck around for his 16 minute speech. Martin hadn't meant to talk about his now famous dream that day. During a pause in his prepared speech, Mahalia Jackson said "Tell 'em about the dream, Martin!". She was referring to an article on the news two months before in Detroit. Honoring her request, he did exactly that. Historians believe that the marches and King's speech were important catalysts in passing the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Today, a memorial marks the spot where he described his dream of a better America in one of the most influential and memorable speeches in American history.
