Minister Louis Farrakhan and Benjamin Chavis made good on their plans to bring one million Black men to the National Mall in Washington on Oct. 16, 1995, marking a clear victory for positive change during a decade riddled by Black-on-Black violence, unemployment and drug abuse in Black communities nationwide.
