‘Alright’ was recently heard being chanted on the streets of DC during the ‘Justice Or Else’ Million Man March, with thousands of protesters joining in on a rendition of chorus line “we gonna be alright“.

The march took place in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the original ‘Million Man March’, and took the theme ‘Justice Or Else’. Nation of Islam leader and organiser Louis Farrakhan echoed the original calls from 1995, asking for social justice reform in America.
