WASHINGTON (NNPA) – Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan has now been confirmed as part of the line up of speakers to address the first major gathering of Black leaders after this week’s election, according to the organizer, Dr. Ron Daniels.
“The State of the Black World Conference will be the first great gathering of Black people from the U.S. and the Black World after the election to develop a priority policy agenda to present to the new administration,” says Daniels, a veteran political and social activist. “As the visionary architect of the historic Million Man March, it is only fitting that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan give the climatic address at this milestone gathering of Black people.''
The conference, to be held at New Orleans’ Ernest Morial Convention Ceter and Astor Crown Plaza Hotel Nov. 19-23, will come on the heels of a historic election that not only registered millions of new Black voters, but inspired thousands to activism. Daniels is hoping that excitement not cease after the election, but rather galvanize into action to hold the new president accountable.
“Participants will leave armed with a priority policy agenda on Black concerns to constructively engage and influence the next administration no matter who wins the White House,'' Daniels says. Farrakhan is slated to give the final keynote address on Sunday - “The Call to Faith and Struggle,” says Daniels. “We are absolutely elated that Minister Farrkahan has agreed to return to New Orleans for this extraordinary gathering. His address will be a fitting climax to the SOBWC given his strong support for the process of building the Institute of the Black World over the years.”
Other confirmed speakers to appear at the conference include Bev Smith, syndicated Talk Show Host on the American Urban Radio Networks; Rev. Al Sharpton, president, National Action Network; Dr. Julianne Malveaux, president of Bennett College; Marc Morial, president/CEO, National Urban League; Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, president, National Rainbow/Push Coalition; Congressman John Conyers, Jr., Dean of the Congressional Black Caucus and chair of the House Judiciary Committee; Dr. Elsie Scott, President/CEO, Congressional Black Caucus Foundation; Dr. Maulana Karenga, Creator of Kwanzaa and professor of Africana Studies and Chairman of Black Studies at California State University at Long Beach; Dr. Ronald Walters, professor of Government and politics, University of Maryland; Charles Ogletree, Harvard Law Professor; and Danny Glover, actor and humanitarian.
