Twenty years ago, on October 16, 1995, hundreds of thousands of black men gathered on the National Mall in Washington, DC to call attention to the economic and political issues facing black men in America. This weekend, on October 10th,  thousands will gather on the National Mall again to mark the 20th anniversary of the march.
