Responding to the Call: The New Black Vanguard Conference

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Has the establishment black leadership become irrelevant? Conservative black Americans say "yes," and they're calling for the reinstitution of principled black leadership in the tradition of Booker T. Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Organizations such as the NAACP, Jesse Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH, and the Congressional Black Caucus have utterly failed to provide moral leadership in the black community and have become the tools for extremist political agendas.

In response, BOND (the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny) and The Heritage Foundation are co-sponsoring an historic conference - Responding To The Call: The New Black Vanguard Conference - to address this crisis and the spiraling moral and physical decline taking place within America's inner cities.

Conference participants will also address ways to counter the liberals' attack on distinguished and accomplished black Americans such as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Justice Clarence Thomas. Audience members will be able to participate in a Question and Answer session at the conclusion of the program.
