On October 15, 2005, there will be a gathering on the Mall in Washington, D.C. commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the Million Man March: “The Millions More Movement.”
Ten years ago, the historic Million Man March brought nearly two million men to the Nation’s Capitol and demonstrated the willingness of Black men to atone to God for shortcomings as men, husbands and fathers and, a willingness to reconcile differences at home, school, church, organizations and in the society in general. An increase in Black male voter participation and thousands of adoptions following the March was directly attributed to the successful event.
“Although many wonderful things have happened as a result of the march, 10 years later, the masses of our people are slipping further behind. The knowledge to correct the horror of our condition is among us. The potential force and power to cause us to rise as a people is among us. The finance to fuel our rise is also among us. It is the unity of our leadership and organizations. Our unity, the pooling of our resources, financially and intellectually will solve 95% of our problems,”stated the Convener, Min. Louis Farrakhan.
Endorsed by a wide diversity of groups and individuals such as the Congressional Black Caucus, the Worker’s Movement, Russell Simmons, the New Black Panther Party and the National Council of Negro Women, organizing for the Millions More Movement has brought together over 100 leaders and organizers who have agreed to serve as co-conveners.
“For the first time in our history, those of us of different ideologies, philosophies, methodologies, denominations, sects and religions, political and fraternal affiliations have come together to create the Millions More Movement. Each of us have agreed to work together for the benefit of the whole of our people,” stated, Minister Farrakhan.
