*National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) started in 1996. It was started by Joseph Dulin, a longtime school principal in Michigan after he attended the Million Man March in Washington, D.C. He was inspired by a speaker at the event who challenged the men in the crowd to go back to their communities and do more.
