The Million Youth March 2013 Weekend Begins Thursday, September 5th

On Thursday, September 5th, the Million Youth March (MYM) 2013 Weekend will begin!
Taking center stage will be the much anticipated Black Family Convention (BFC)!
All taking place at the Harlem State Office Building, it will feature hardhitting workshops and Town Hall Meetings addressing the cutting edge issues facing Black youth today! A full schedule of activities is annexed.
The Harlem State Office Building and Plaza is located Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard and 125th Street.
One much anticipated action will be the National Gun Violence Truce Town Hall meeting, which will take place tomorrow night at 8pm.
“We’re glad to finally be here,” said its convener Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz, the co-founder of Black Lawyers For Justice and national chairman for the New Black Panther Party.

On Saturday, September 7th, the Million Youth March 15th Anniversary Rally will take place at the Harlem State Office Building Plaza from 12 noon to7pm.
Earlier in the day, starting at 9am in the Plaza, will be the youth performances, spotlighting young talent in the community!
The Million Youth March took place on September 5, 1998 in Harlem. Convened by the legendary Khallid Abdul Muhammad, it brought together the most talented and militant young Black activists of the time from all over the country wanting to change their condition all along Harlem’s Malcolm X Boulevard corridor under a genuine Black Power Agenda in the tens of thousands! It legally withstood an effort to have it “banished” to the outskirts of the city. It even withstood a senseless, reckless, unprovoked attack by New York City police! It would be followed by the Million Youth March 1999 and 2000. These gatherings clearly established the blossoming the New Black Panther Party as a national force under Muhammad’s leadership.
In 2003, Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz convened the Million Youth 5th Anniversary March and Rally in Brooklyn, showcasing his own Black Power coalition-building efforts and the continued presence and efforts of the New Black Panther Party under his leadership. Shabazz succeeded Muhammad after his untimely death on February 17, 2001…
