#OnThisDay in 1997, over a half million African American women gathered to march on the Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia for the Million Woman March, which sought to inspire African American women across the nation to work for their own improvement as well as that of their communities.

The day-long march and program of prayer, music, and inspirational speeches sought to address pressing interests for African American women, including the economic deterioration of African American communities, the importance of nurturing young children in a positive environment, finding a collective voice in politics and the civil rights movement, and strengthening Black families.

The organizers, led by grassroots Philadelphia activists Phile Chionesu and Asia Coney, took a grassroots approach, choosing to bypass organizations such as the NAACP and the Nation of Islam, both of which were influential in organizing the Million Man March in 1995. No major media, Hollywood, or TV personalities were invited. California Congresswoman Maxine Waters and South African activist and politician Winnie Madikezela-Mandela were the two main speakers to address attendees.

The mission statement of the rally on the Internet was as follows: “The Million Woman March is being implemented by Black Women who interact on grassroots and global levels. Black Women who understand the necessity of rebuilding our foundation as a people, and that we must in many respects begin at the origin (the root) upward…” #APeoplesJourney

Today, the National Museum of African American History and Culture mourns the passing of influential filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles. Peebles was a pioneering African American film director as well as an actor, playwright and novelist.

He started shooting short documentaries in the 1950s; combining that career with writing, he eventually produced a feature film in France called La Permission (The Story of a Three-Day Pass; 1968). In an ironic instance of national/racial misidentification, Hollywood producers assumed he was French (and white) and offered him a contract.

His first film, Watermelon Man (1970), was also an exploration of confused identities, showing a racist white man who suddenly becomes Black. Van Peebles’s experience with studio executives was fractious, and he was determined to have total control over his next project, the pathbreaking Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song (1971).

The movie heralded a new era of African American–focused films and was the highest-grossing independent film at the time. In a career that spanned more than half a century, Melvin Van Peebles inspired a generation of filmmakers to create stories through the African American lens.

Melvin Van Peebles was the father of actor and director Mario Van Peebles.

"Dad knew that Black images matter. If a picture is worth a thousand words, what was a movie worth? We want to be the success we see, thus we need to see ourselves being free," Mario Van Peebles said of his father's work in his statement. "True liberation did not mean imitating the colonizer's mentality. It meant appreciating the power, beauty and interconnectivity of all people."
