Million Father March in East St.Louis

East St. Louis Mayor holds a flyer promoting the Million Father March, an event that gains momentum by getting fathers to escort their sons and daughters to the first day school. Studies have shown that when a man is involved in students' education, the students perform better.

Parks is joined by a representative of the Black Star Project that has commitments from 492 cities across America that are participating in the Million Father March. The 100 Black Men of Chicago were proud to assist with literature and distribution and are looking forward to Real Men Read in our local schools as well as their eighth annual College Scholarship Fair.
