Photographs by Katina Parker
Created by Katina Parker, the One Million Strong Traveling Photo 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).
The Hayti exhibit will be the first full-showing of the collected work and will become a traveling exhibit, available to universities, community arts centers, and galleries.
