Bring Back BLACK

UPDATE: Many wonder what comes after the Jena March. Emerging Minds argues that it is time to Bring Back BLACK. We shared information on this last month. Are you going?

Bring Back BLACK is developing and implementing a more effective leadership model that better addresses the needs of African Americans who are disconnected from the mainstream in the USA and across the African Diaspora. This leadership model will address the need for more effective political action, and grassroots economic development that benefits African American communities.

Representatives of the Movement to “Bring Back Black” plans to hold a “Birth-Giving” Convention for a new national organization of Black Nationalists and Pan-Africanists to be named the Nationalist Black Leadership Council. The convention will be held at the Dudley Conference and Retreat Center in Kernersville, North Carolina.

What makes the convention unique and unprecedented is that three national organizations will hold their annual conventions in the same location at the same time. The New MATTAH Movement and the National Black Alliance Network will also hold their annual conventions at the Dudley complex in October 2007.

Hmmm, I'm going to have to see if I, or at least someone from my organization, the Nashville Black Covenat Coalition, can go.

This is happening THIS weekend?! First I've heard; might have been nice to check it out but I guess it wasn't intended for me.
