Atlanta (PRWEB) October 14, 2007
The 12th anniversary of the Million Man March and the Holy Day of Atonement will be celebrated on October 16, 2007 with a special message by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan at the Atlanta Civic Center. The Holy Day of Atonement is the annual celebration commemorating the historic Million Man March which took place in Washington, DC in 1995.
“The Minister had a bout with prostate cancer and it is hard to believe that just 10 months ago he was having a 14 hour surgery. The prayers from so many went up to a mighty God from all across the world. Minister Farrakhan is alive today because of those prayers and a mighty God,” said Minister Farrakhan’s assistant, Ishmael Muhammad at a recent press conference.
“I want to thank the city of Atlanta for welcoming us,” said Mr. Muhammad. “After Minister Farrakhan visits the city, he will leave a positive energy and something to build on. He will offer words and guidance on principles of atonement.”
The address by Minister Farrakhan will wrap up four days of activities, including a Walk-For-Life sponsored by the Louis Farrakhan Prostate Cancer Foundation, as well as meetings with religious, political and business leaders of the Atlanta metropolitan area.
Minister Farrakhan’s address will be broadcast live via satellite in over 120 cities throughout America and locations worldwide.
Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of death for men and Black men in particular. The Louis Farrakhan Prostate Cancer Foundation was created to generate greater awareness of the disease and to get Black men tested.
