The Game plans Million Man March with civil rights leader Louis Farrakhan

Rapper The Game is joining forces with civil rights leader Louis Farrakhan to lead the 2015 Million Man March.

The Dreams hitmaker sat down with the head of the Nation of Islam religious group on Wednesday (17Jun15) to discuss plans for the 20th anniversary of the event, which will feature a mass demonstration by civil rights activists on Washington, D.C.'s National Mall.


The march is expected to draw thousands in light of the increasing numbers of alleged police brutality incidents involving black youths across the U.S., and The Game plans to be front and center at the peaceful protest.


The hip-hop star shared a photo of himself and Farrakhan on Instagram.com after the meeting, and captioned it, "Spent the early part of my day with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan getting a bit of spiritual enlightenment as well as preparation for our march on Washington D.C. This October 10th 2015 for the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.... This time were (sic) coming for #JusticeOrElse."
