Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 08, 2015

The Black Graduate Student Organization of Carnegie-Mellon University and the Washington, DC Ministry of Arts and Culture Present: “The Million Man March – The Untold Story” Film Screening and Discussion.

The choking death of Eric Garner, the shooting deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown and the near-death shooting of Leon Ford of Pittsburgh are just a few of the incidents that have sparked outrage among students and community leaders around the country, with some saying that this is a war on young black men. Minister Farrakhan also called The Million Man March “our response to this war that has been ongoing since the Reagan/Bush years in the White House.” Now, in 2015, what are the next steps? What should we do?

Please join the BGSO of Carnegie-Mellon University, Paradise Gray of X-Clan & 1Hood, Student Minister Victor Muhammad of Muhammad Mosque #22 and other student & community leaders in screening this timely film and in discussing how we can use the lessons learned from the Million Man March to address the current themes of #HandsUpDontShoot, #ICantBreathe, #BlackLivesMatter, #MillionManMarch and #JusticeForLeon in an effective manner.

Date: Saturday, January 17, 2015, Time: 4pm - 7pm Carnegie Mellon University
Cohon University Center
McConomy Auditorium
5000 Forbes Avenue

Vanguard Television and the Washington, D.C. Ministry of Arts and Culture are proud to debut an exciting new film, The Million Man March – The Untold Story. The documentary, directed by independent filmmaker and Howard University graduate Angela R. Muhammad, addresses numerous questions, controversies and misconceptions about the Million Man March of 1995 in Washington, D.C., while offering a behind the scenes look at what actually occurred before and after the March.

Many stories have been told about the Million Man March, attended by more than two million men from all over the world. But what is the untold story? Witness as we hear from the man through whom the March was called, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. The documentary answers questions like, what inspired the call and what caused 2 million black men to respond? What role did religion play? Why only men? What happened to the money? Why a journey to the Middle East and Africa after the March? Should a follow-up March be held? Finally, the answers to these and other questions are revealed in this documentary.

The Million Man March - The Untold Story also features Chuck D (Public Enemy), Rev. Willie Wilson (Pastor of Union Temple Baptist Church), Marion Barry (former Washington, D.C. mayor), the late Dr. Dorothy Height (former president of the National Council of Negro Women) Ice T (Hip Hop Artist, Law and Order SVU) and many others.
