On the heels of the execution of Troy Davis who many believed to be innocent, and the larger backdrop of the dismal state of Black manhood in the United States, all roads leads to Philadelphia from October 7-9 for the sixteenth anniversary of the historic Million Man March and Holy Day of Atonement.

 

The weekend commemorates the 1995 mass call from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan for Black men to commit to atonement, reconciliation and responsibility in the way of God, self, family and community. The invitation drew two million men to Washington, D.C., and is a spiritual and positive historical milestone for the Black male experience in America.

However since the great gathering and what many described as a “glimpse of heaven,” active opposition to Black men being whole, free and justified compounds a myriad of problems that plague the group. And there is also the continued need for Black men to address and counter persistent negative conditions imposed from without and negative reactions to these conditions and problems from within.
