Wednesday, October 16, 2013 marked the 18th Anniversary of the Million Man March. Over 2 million Black Men made the pilgrimage to Washington D.C.in 1995, 90,000 of which hailed from Atlanta, Georgia. They were called by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan for a day of Purpose, Reconciliation & Atonement. Such a historical event as this has never happened before in the history of America and none recorded in the world. As momentous of an occasion the tragedy is that most of the youth of today know very little to nothing of the Million Man March due to the fact that they were not born. Mays High School students gave a presentation entitled, “Remembering the Million Man March.” A historical study of the Million Man March, its significance, relevance and impact. In addition, the study of the Economic Blueprint, as well as, the 8 Steps of Atonement as a viable approach to conflict resolution among our youth and community at-large.
SiMan and Chubb Rock were also in attendance of the observance.
