Thousands of African Americans gathered Saturday at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March amid calls for reforms to the flawed criminal justice system, and changes within the black community itself to help stem the tide of violence. Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan, who launched the first march, is slated to lead the anniversary event called "Justice or Else." In many ways, the event served as a continuation of the National Black Family Reunions started Dr. Dorothy Height of the National Council of Negro Women.
