Nation of Islam and the Million Man March
Conrad Worrill wrote an article posted at the Indianapolis Recorder on July 1, 1995 explaining how the Minnesota Chapter of the Million Man March named itself Men Are Responsible to Cultivate Hope (MARCH), led by Minister James Muhammad.
According to the article, which decries "white supremacy," some of the demands include "reparations," and what appears to be the means to create an independent black state. In his 2014 book, "My Country Tis of Thee," Keith Ellison claims that Men Are Responsible To Cultivate Hope still meets and he tries to stop by occasionally.
National Black United Front
In 1996 Worrill was head of the US's largest secular black-nationalist organization, the National Black United Front. At the time he was a professor at Northeastern Illinois University's Center for Inner City Studies and was prominent speaker at 1995's Million Man Man March.
