Initially, [James Baldwin's] novel was meant to be a testimonial of the lives of slain civil rights icons Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. But it’s in his prophetic narration of race relations (delivered eloquently by Samuel L.

Last night I had the pleasure of being an invited guest to hear the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan speak and get Miami hyped for the upcoming 20th anniversary celebration of the Million Man March! He is requesting everyone who seeks justice to return to Washington DC on October 10th so the #JusticeOrElseMessage can be delivered! His sermon was electrifying, engaging, thought provoking and left his audience ready to take action. Mt. Zion Baptist Church was filled to capacity with people of all ages and different races ready to receive his teachings.
