October 16th: 10/16/1995

On October 16, 1995, an estimated 850,000 Black men from across the U.S. gathered together for the Million Man March at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to rally in one of largest demonstrations in Washington history. This assembly of black men was organized and hosted by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan who called for “all able-bodied African American men to come to the nation’s capital to address the ills of black communities and call for unity and revitalization of African American communities.” Although the Million Man March was proposed and organized primarily by the leader of Islam, many religions, institutions, and community organizations across the spectrum of “African America” joined together not only for a rally of black men but also to build what many saw as a movement directed toward a future renaissance of the black race. Watch a brief video from that historical day https://youtu.be/0EBQ0taYXtQ
