“We have lost a giant in the struggle with the passing of Mayor Marion S. Barry, Jr., of Washington, D.C., a man who lived a life of struggle for the elevation and liberation of our people.” -The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan 

 

“Mr. Barry is remembered most for being a “champion” who opened the door to Blacks in the D.C. government; for establishing a popular summer job program which guaranteed work for every high-school-age youth in the city; for advocating on behalf of and delivering city services to the elderly and to citizens returning from incarceration.” -The Final Call
