An Open Letter
An appeal to all those who would be a part of the Millions More Movement
-by Min. Louis Farrakhan

"I am so honored that women are responding so well. I know the strength that comes when we come together."
Dr. Dorothy Height


 

Ten years after the 1995 Million Man March, we asked the nation, “What time is it?” Why do we march today? To stop oppressive judges. Civil Rights are under attack. Why do we march? It didn’t start today. 1619 to 1865—246 years of legal slavery, the Civil War promises made, promises broken; law changed, culture did not; free, but not equal and not protected by law. Why do we march? We march this year because there are two Americas, where gaps continue to exist in economics, housing, education and other social categories. We march because, in every state, there are more young Black men in jail than in college. We march because our government overthrew a democracy in Haiti. We march today and we move today because we’re under attack and we will not surrender. "We march this year because there are two Americas, where gaps continue to exist."
-Reverend
Jesse Jackson

 



"We are here today to move forward. We are here today because our children demand it of us."
-Dr. Julianne Malveaux

 

 

"We must show the world a new people coming up. Time for foolishness is over.  This is the year for us to break down all walls. This is our time"
Malik Zulu Shabazz
