The National Black Leadership Summit VII scheduled for Jan. 28

The Nubian Leadership Circle is convening its quarterly gathering of great minds from throughout the global Black experience. The National Black Leadership Summit VII  is pulling leaders and like-minded persons to discuss, plan and organize around Black self-determination and Black nation-building.

The virtual meeting is open for the public to join on Jan. 28 at 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (EST). The “Summit VII” theme is “Fulfilling Determination To Build Our Own Black Nation!!” The featured keynote speaker will be Professor Griff, author, lecturer, and formerly of the iconic hip-hop group Public Enemy.

The Nubian Leadership Circle has eight working groups called cadres. Those groups are: Family Essence; Economic Development; Land And Food; Communication Technology; Spiritual Renewal; Arts And Culture; Health And Education; and International Advocacy.

Each cadre led by co-facilitators holds working sessions around specific projects in between each summit and reports on progress at the summit. The Jan. 28 summit aims to continue the process. Since the beginning of the summits, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam participated and supported the efforts. In Summit VI, the Muslim leader gave words of guidance on the significance of seeing the goal of Black nation-building through.


“An old world is going down and going out and God is bringing a new world in,” Minister Farrakhan told the gathering. “And in the midst of all of that, here we are rising,” he added.

The Nubian Leadership is holding a summit on the basis of building a united Black nation on the basis of self-determination.

“You cannot determine for yourself until you know yourself and know what is required of yourself to build a new independent nation,” Minister Farrakhan said. 

Setting the tone for the effort, the Minister explained that self-determination is a desire to feed the will of all interested in building a nation. When the desire has fed the will, and the will is united with the Will of God, then we can go to work, knowing that every knock is a boost.

“And we are on our way to what our ancestors wanted, a nation free, a nation justified, a nation made equal by doing what God gave us to do in the nature of our creation,” noted Minister Farrakhan.

Summit convenor, longtime freedom fighter Sidiki Kambon said, the ultimate goal is to establish a base for Black people to become self-sufficient in agriculture, commerce, and healthcare. He also recognized the vital need for involving youth in substantive ways.

“It’s becoming more and more of a revelation that we better come together and do what we got to do ourselves, because no one else is going to do it for us,” he said.

Mr. Kambon encourages new participants to register with a cadre they are interested in and for returning participants to register with the same cadre they have been a part of.
