On Saturday morning, Washington, D.C. became the host for one of the largest gatherings of Blacks in twenty years. With the sound of beating drums, welcoming guests onto the National Mall, it was truly a sight to behold as people trickled in and later poured onto the Mall of our Nations Capitol to hear words of Hope and Encouragement as they came to remember the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March.
The weather was simply perfect, with crisp Fall temperatures and an occasional cloud floating by as the crowd started gathering, some with signs in their hands, as early as 6am, for the main event, “Justice or Else” that was slated to start at 10am.
The “Justice or Else” rally convened by the Nation of Islam’s controversial leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan, was also opened to all Faiths, who were welcomed to talk about their Faith and their most concerning issues and many of them did.
Among the guest speakers was Pastor Jamal Bryant, who made it clear, that Jesus Christ was the head of his life and reminded those in the crowd of that as well. He addressed concerning issues and demanded justice for our youth as well. However there were some Christian Ministers, who were given the opportunity to speak, and while they addressed crucial issues, as they came to their closing, they recognized the most High, but stopped short of saying the name of “Jesus Christ.” For many Christians in attendance showing their support for Justice in our country, this was a huge disappointment and even shocking…to see others and Native Indians, speaking highly of their Faith, but for many of the Christian Ministers, they buckled and did not recognize Jesus Christ! Later in the evening, Pastor Bryant brought up the same issue on his Periscope and said, “I just don’t understand it.”
