Description: 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 shares the story of the March in a new light: through the eyes of a little girl who was with her father the day Black men made history. (32 pgs) Ages 4-8
Ashay says, "The Million Man March was such a historic moment in African American and American history. I am so happy to see this book so the story will continue to be told and the people will be reminded that we still have work to do. Fathers be the example ... teach! Must have for the family."
