To honor these men and its convenor, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, Virtue Today Magazine is launching a special digital issue highlighting the march, the stories of men who attended, and the impact it had on them. It will also highlight black businesses, many of which started after the Million Man March.

Why would a women’s magazine have a cover story about the Million Man March? “My younger brother and cousin attended the march and I remember the positive impact it had on them and Black men around the world. As a member of the media,” said Audrey Muhammad, editor of Virtue Today Magazine, “I feel obligated to highlight such a prominent event in our history. If we don’t do it, who will?”

It is a powerful pledge that should be taught and given to men each year. The pledge stated the following:

Not only will you be able to read about this amazing event, but you can hear from men who were there on Saturday, October 9th during a special edition of the magazine’s talk show called “Virtue Live!” To view the show, register at https://virtuelive.eventbrite.com and get your free ticket and a digital copy of the magazine. One participant was a 20-year-old college student from Toledo, Ohio who attended with a friend. They slept on the floor of the house of a family they didn’t know so they could attend the march.

On the show, one of the guests will be Student Minister Abdul Sharieff Muhammad, who was in the Supreme Captain of the NOI during that time and helped arrange the security for that day. He will talk about his experience that day and his new book, Down, But not Out.
