The March on Washington led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibited discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, provided for the integration of schools and other public facilities, and made employment discrimination illegal. It was one of the crowning legislative achievements of the Civil Rights Movement and paved the way for more critical legislation, like the Voting Rights Act of 1965 which ensured every American -- particularly African Americans -- had equal access to the ballot box.
