Live from the Millions More Movement march in Washington DC
It’s a new millennium. It began with what may have been a stolen election in the mightiest country on Earth; it trundled forth on roads lubricated with blood before it descended into rumours of plagues, catastrophic storms and earthquakes, and international pillage powered by mortar shells and stealth bombers. Ten years ago last weekend, millennium minus five, I stood shoulder to shoulder with a million African men at the centre of global power. And last weekend, I returned for a reunion of sorts, a look back and a launching forward, a commemoration of the Million Man March and a call to action to hold back the night by stealing back fire from false gods.
