A copy of "The Final Call" from October 10, 2015.
The top center of the newspaper reads [The Final Call] in a bold, black, fancy font. There is a color drawing of a trumpet on the proper right side with lines coming out of it. To the left of the words there are symbols for Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Above the title there is a box with text. It reads ['ALL ROADS LEAD TO WASHINGTON'/An invitation to join the Justice Or Else! Gathering. Oct. 10, 2015/By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan- Page 20], with a color photo of Louis Farrkhan on the proper right.
Under "The Final Call" three websites are listed. Below the websites it reads [SPECIAL EDITION OCTOBER 10, 2015 U.S. $2.00]. Below that there is a black line with the text [JUSTICEORELSE.COM 10.10.15 JUSTICE...OR ELSE!] in white, with the date in the center in yellow.
Below it there is a collage of photos in color. The photos show groups of people marching and holding signs that include slogans such as "Black Lives Matter" and "Justice for Black, Brown, Red & Poor!", as well as some in Spanish. In the center there is a black and white "Justice...or Else!" logo.
The logo has the shape of the U.S. Capitol building at the top. There is a line drawing of the Capitol in white. Below it there is a white rectangle. Inside it reads [JUSTICE.../OR/ELSE!] in white. There is a line between "Justice" and "Else" and the "Or" is in the center inside of a square. The "!" makes up a part of the rectangle that is around the words.
Below the rectangle it reads [20th ANNIVERSARY/THE MILLION MAN MARCH] in white.
The back of the newspaper features ads for Louis Farrakhan interview DVDs and ads for merchandise from the march.
