Million Father March

Walking around downtown it's easy to get bombarded with useless flyers promoting everything from club nights to lunch specials, but today I was pleasantly surprised to see black youth handing out flyers promoting the Million Father March.

A program established in 2004 by The Black Star Project, the Million Father March was created as way for fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers - - any significant male caregiver - - to walk their children to school, creating "an honor guard of strong, positive men supporting all children at that school". This year the Million Father March will be held on Tuesday, September 8th (the first day of school for most Chicago Public Schools).
