I was not a member of The Nation in 1995, nor were most of the men at the march. But how can you HATE a Black man that inspired more than ONE MILLION to come out to DC from all over the US (and other parts of the world)? He didn't ask them for anything for himself, only something for themselves. He just asked them to stand up and be present.
Listening to the conversation of men who went often brings tears to my eyes. They speak of it in hushed tones. They talk as if still in disbelief of what they witnessed. More than ONE MILLION BLACK MEN standing together.
To Minister Farrakhan, my husband, my father, my brother and any other brother who went, I say happy anniversary.
p.s. The Minister will make a big announcement this Sunday.
