CSU Students at Million Man March

“As a student leader of a Predominantly Black University, I felt it was important that CSU be represented at this significant event and that our students have a chance to understand more about who we are, where we are and where we are going,” said CSU student Darrin Martin

Twenty years ago, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan put out a call to action for Black men across the nation that became known as the Million Man March. In the early 1990’s there was a great deal of unrest throughout the country. The 1991 Rodney King beatings followed by the acquittal of four L.A. police officers sparked the L.A. Riots for the next three days.Farrakhan’s open invitation in 1995 sought to bring Black men together from all walks of life.

During the 20 year anniversary celebration, CSU students heard Farrakhan speak on various topics such as education and community development. They also had the opportunity to represent CSU in TV interviews with Revolt TV and Hispan TV.

Students took the opportunity to visit the campus of Howard University and connect with fellow students. On the ride home, student leaders had an in depth discussion about the march, the future and what could be done to improve the CSU community.
