The impact of the Million Man March is still being felt 15 years later. I remember standing on the Mall steps, proud to be one in a million. Here’s another example of how historic this beautiful day was. I just received information about this new book about the Million Man March.
“On October 16, 1995, Black men of all ages, religions and backgrounds gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. They were there on a mission to mobilize and motivate, as part of what would become the largest event of its kind in U.S. history: the Million Man March.
The Million Man March was a movement like no other. It brought together Black men who were committed to inspiring and empowering themselves and each other to make positive and lasting changes in their families and communities. The March was widely covered by news media across the country and the world.
Now, this new picture book, One Million Men and Me, shares the story of the March in a new light: through the eyes of a little girl who was with her daddy the day Black men made history. Illustrated by Peter Ambush. (Hardcover)”
