Min. Louis Farrakhan, The Time and What Must Be Done

In 1979 the Oakland police were killing a Black man a month. After they killed 15 year old Melvin Black, we organized a rally of five thousand people at the Oakland Auditorium, featuring Minister Farrakhan, along with Angela Davis, Eldridge Cleaver, Oba T-Shaka, Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al Mansour, Paul Cobb and others. After the rally, the killing of Black men by the OPD stopped but drive by killings began with the introduction of Uzis and Crack cocaine and black on black homicide has continued until this day. --Marvin X
