On our Wednesday, October 14, 2015 Program:
“20th Anniversary of the Million Man March”
Tens of thousands people gathered this week on the National Mall in Washington, DC to mark the twentieth anniversary of the Million Man March, under the theme of “Justice… or Else.” Unlike the historic march of 1995, where nearly one million black men of different faiths came together under the theme of “Atonement, Reconciliation and Responsibility,” this year, men and women of different races came to the U.S. capital to make demands of their federal lawmakers for equal justice under the law and to address the violence that is gripping many black communities. This year’s march comes following the deaths of several unarmed black men at the hands of white police officers from Ferguson, Missouri, to New York City.
Join us for this live one-hour television and radio call-in simulcast, when host Shaka Ssali and his guests discuss the significance of the twentieth anniversary of the “Million Man March.”
