The 20th Anniversary Of The Million Man March
It was a day of peace and unity as thousands of African-Americans descended upon Washington D.C. to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of The Million Man March on Saturday. With racism, police brutality, and voting rights among the many issues that affect blacks currently in the forefront, Saturday's theme "Justice Or Else" was discussed in day long speeches by various leaders including Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farakkhan.
A wide range of topics were discussed including abortion, marriage, economics, the importance of passing the torch and fight for justice to future generations. It was a great day to be in D.C. to commemorate such an historic event. As Benjamin Chavis pointed out that 20 years ago, a young senator from Illinois attended the first march and went on to become president, Barack Obama.
