by #teamEBONY, December 13, 2012


Documented by filmmaker/photographer Katina Parker, One Million Strong Photo Essay Exhibit captures the essence of the Million Man March (Washington, D.C.) and the 10 years of subsequent political/cultural gatherings it inspired: the World Day of Atonement in New York City (1996); the Million Women March in Philadelphia (1997); the Million Youth March in Harlem (1998); the Million Youth Movement in Atlanta (1998); the Million Family March in Washington, DC. (2000); and the Millions More Movement March in Washington, DC (2005).

Parker spent 10 years documenting the marches. She is currently working on a book and organizing a 20-city tour for One Million Strong. Consisting of one hundred 12″ x 18″ black and white images, as well as essay text and video, the exhibit opened in October 2012 at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham, North Carolina where it will be on display through February 25, 2013.

Images from the One Million Strong Photo Exhibit are currently on display at The Hayti Heritage Center, Durham, NC through Feb. 25, 2013
