The crowd of marchers began to form as buses rolled in from across the state, early Saturday morning.
An estimated 175,000 people gathered in the hours leading up to the pre-march rally, including men, women, and children.
They carried with them an array of signs, all reflecting the variety of people and viewpoints present.
Politicians, civil rights leaders, and performance took to the podium to get the crowd fired up and ready to go.
The crowd was ready to march.
Police cleared the way for the beginning of the march, which began on Beacon Street.
The march circled around Boston Common via Beacon, Arlington, and Boylston Streets before heading back onto Boston Common via Charles St.
