Responding to the Call: The New Black Vanguard Conference
Recorded on February 24, 2005
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
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.
