On the floor by my bed is one of the books that made me a journalist, Sylvester Monroe and Peter Goldman's Brothers. (Goldman, I would learn later, wrote the biography, The Death and Life of Malcolm X.) I moved it around this morning because I couldn't find my bus ticket for this Million Man March reunion. That book told the stories of black men struggling to survive in Chicago and beyond.
The Million Man March was an attempt by black men to write their own stories, in their own minds and hearts. What, then, is this 20th MMM reunion, "Justice--Or Else!" about, really? Black men were considered an endangered species when Brothers came out in 1988, the first MMM in 1995, and perhaps still now. Why do this?
Perhaps it's necessary for blacks to subconsciously and literally travel to the altars that mean something to them. This one, the National Mall, is the site of a mid-20th century African-American dream. As the ritual now stands, once arrived, the names of those who have joined the Ancestors, are called out loud. And so this assemblage. This time, to specifically remember today's lynching victims and yesteryear's MMM spiritual power, when black men blocked out the white backlash over the O.J. Simpson verdict and the Newt Gingrich Republicans and repeated a chant from Minister Louis Farrakhan. The promise: to make themselves better.
So the Million Man March joins the now-regular commemoration of the 1963 March on Washington. The original Black Panther Party has had reunions, and will have its 50th anniversary next year. Why do the black people find these activist reunions necessary? Because as an oppressed people, their transformation--hard-earned through struggle--is more than deserving enough for nostalgia, for solemn reflection of battles lost and won.
My ticket was found, and I'm now on the bus, struggling with the narratives to come.
