  • In 1998, The Million Youth March was held in Harlem, New York.
  • Organizers said the march was to promote unity among young Blacks and end gang violence.
  • Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, citing concerns about safety, tried to prevent the march from occurring.
  • Parker, who had photographed the Million Man, World Day of Atonement and Million Woman Marches, was there.
  • Visit PBS Black Culture Connection to read more stories about civil rights photographers and the images that changed the world.
