Min. Farrakhan overviews the positive effects of the Million Man March during popular lecture series and how that event gave us 10 years of extended grace from God.
You are going to have to really study the cardinal truth of the Nation of Islam which is written on page 39 of every Final Call newspaper and can be found here to really understand that above statement. It’s real.
During lecture number 8, Min. Farrakhan continues his illuminating message, he discussed the positive effects of the Million Man March which I dare to say were pleasing to Almighty God Allah.
The Minister, on that day, October 16, 1995 encouraged Black people to adopt Black children and 25,000 orphans found a new home.
On an off congressional election cycle, 1.6 new registered voters were produced.
The Minister didn’t use that time for self aggrandizement. He encouraged the nearly 2 million men gathered to join an organization of their choice and to find a spiritual home.
Many Black men made a decision, on that day, to start mentoring young men and many Black men become entrepreneurs because of what they heard and decided while standing on the Mall in Washington, DC at the Million Man March.
Yes, on that day, the U.S. government, the Supreme Court, and U.S. congress all closed down. Then President, Bill Clinton found it convenient to go out of town.
The Minister also highlighted this incredible fact. He said that 82% of those that attended the Million Man March were Christian. This shows that Black people can call a cease fire to religious gangbanging for the good of our community.
