Million Man March Redux

Million Man March Redux. It doesn't seem possible, but the 10th anniversary of the Million man March is c oming up next October. Largely ignored by white Americans, it was probably the most important political event for African-Americans in the 1990's. Some of the organizations involved in the first MMM are hoping to replicate its impact by holding an even larger event next October 16. Details are still sketchy, but some are calling for the largest mass mobilization in US history involving poor whites, Asians and Latinos. Others want the focus to stay on African-American empowerment. In any case, it promises to be a major political event with huge ramifications for progressives.Local organizing in Central Pennsylvania is being coordinated by Don Blackman (donblckmn@aol.com) and Minister Angelo Muhammad (ministerangelo@comcast.net) They have already had the first local organizing meeting for MMM-II. The second meeting of Susquehanna Valley Local Organizing Committee (SVLOC) will be held on Saturday, January 8 at noon at the Comfort Inn, 525 South Front Street in Harrisburg. Contact Don Blackman for information about other Pennsylvania organizing.

    The reason white people ignored it is because it was anti-semetic. Farrakkan is a racist.

    MMM = black empowerment for black MEN... Farakan is a sexist - has anyone read his publications?
