This concluding chapter assesses the March on Washington Movement's (MOWM) accomplishments and shortcomings. MOWM did not achieve most of its stated goals, but the organization did give its members a place to refine their skills as leaders. Many of those individuals would use their experiences of fighting racism in World War II to jump-start a lifetime of activism that outlasted the organization they coalesced under during the war years. It is here, in the individual lives of certain members, that MOWM made its greatest impact—and it is at the personal level that this long-defunct organization has the most to teach about sustaining movements for social change.
