WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2018.
NATIONAL BLACK MEN’S CONVENTION DEBUTS IN WASHINGTON, D.C. APRIL 18-22, 2018.
Washington, D.C.– The buzz is intensifying about the first ever National Black Men's Convention coming to NW Washington D.C. Wednesday, April 18 through Sunday, April 22 at the Historic Shiloh Baptist Church 1500 9th Street NW Washington D.C. 20001.
Along with the 10,000 Black Men's March, scheduled for Saturday, April 21 at the White House, the upcoming significant convention is a follow-up to the historic 1995 Million Man March, which instructed Black men to continue to organize and take responsibility for their own plight. The 10,000 Black Men's March will convene under the themes "CONDEMN DONALD TRUMP" and "SAVE OUR SONS: STOP ✋ THE KILLING."span>The controversial March on President Donald Trump's doorstep is expected to draw a massive crowd that will mark open a new political front in the effort to combat the vileness of Trump; whom at least 60% of all Americans believe to be racist, according to recent polls.
National Black Men's Convention and March goers are tackling core issues such as murder and killing, fatherhood support, racism and Donald Trump, police abuse, gentrification, self-defense, education, injustices in the court system and other national challenges facing Black men and our entire race. The entire Black family is welcome.
One of the keynote speakers, Dr. Cornel West says, "I am happy to support the call by Attorney Malik Z. Shabazz for his courageous stand against the racism and the extreme xenophobia of the Trump administration. For Black male leaders from all over America to come and collaborate to address our self-development, social and political crisis is admirable."
The five-day convention includes four individual daily national summits on education, finance, justice and politics, and reparations. The daughter of legendary human rights leader Malcolm X will conduct a book signing and speak on Friday, April 20. Keynote speeches will be delivered by Malik Zulu Shabazz, Esq., the convention host and National President of Black Lawyers for Justice; Dr. Cornel West, leading national author-activist from Harvard University, and Chairman Hashim Nzinga, leader of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense.
Also scheduled to speak are Howard University students, national college student movements, national anti-violence groups, Pastor Ted Sutton with Men Against Murder, leaders from the America Indian Movement, National Action Network (D.C.), NAACP, speakers from Black Lives Matter (Ferguson, Missouri; Baltimore, Maryland; Charlottesville, Virginia; Charleston, South Carolina; Sacramento, California) and other racial/police brutality battlegrounds that March organizers have magnified by President Donald Trump and his reckless and dangerous administration.
Convention Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz, Esq. says "10,000 Black Men or 100,000 for that matter, will be on Donald Trump's doorstep Saturday, April 21 demanding his immediate resignation or removal from office. These 10,000 or more Black men and the entire family of oppressed persons in America will not only serve notice on Mr. Trump, they will moreover declare self-determination actions and subsequently announce a Declaration of Independence: Full and complete Reparations and compensation from the United States Government which has tortuously oppressed or otherwise manipulated Blacks since 1619."
Expected to support the anti-Trump effort are also members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Reverend Al Sharpton, Reverend Jesse Jackson and likely quarterback and national activist Colin Kaepernick.
Opening night April 18, at 5 pm Professor James Smalls, South African lead-educator Baba Buntu, Egyptologist Dr. Tony Browder and the best educators in the Black world will conduct a summit on "Education and Defining Black Manhood."

Speakers include economic experts Dr. Boyce Watkins, Dr. Claude Anderson (by video), CEO Haki Shakur Ammi, CEO hotel owner Michael V. Roberts, and other financial experts. The groundbreaking plan will be endorsed by 100 national and regional organizations and serve as the collective model for Blacks in America and worldwide for the next five years.
