The Nubian Leadership Circle will convene its virtual “National Black Leadership Summit IX” on Saturday, October 14, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. EDT (9:00 a.m. CDT).
The Nubian Leadership Circle is a collective of Black leaders and organizations. Summit IX continues a series of meetings that brings together brilliant thinkers and voices from around Black America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe to discuss and organize around the goal of Black nation-building.
Under the summit theme, “Laying the Foundation for our Own Black Nation!!” reports and further organizing in established working areas called cadres will continue. These areas are Spiritual Renewal; Health and Education; Land and Food; Economic Development; Arts and Culture; Family Essence; Communication Technology, and International Advocacy. The capstone of the virtual gathering will be closing remarks from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, National Representative of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam.
The quarterly meeting convenes at a time when the need for Black self-determination is growing more apparent.
The organizers noted the summit is being convened two days before the 28th anniversary of the historic Million Man March and Holy Day of Atonement, which will be observed Oct. 16.
In addition, Summit IX will highlight the work and progress of the eight cadres, which organized and worked in between the summits.
“The summit is not to talk about the mission or the vision,” said Sadiki Kambon, convenor of the Nubian Leadership Summit. “But to be able to report at the summit, the work that has been done,” he added.
The organizers said there is an emphasis on recruitment and engagement. The summits provide a space where everyone can provide insight, ideas, and information that can help improve the Black condition and advance toward nation-building. The summit, which will be held online, is free and open to the public. For more information and to register for Black Leadership Summit IX, visit www.nubianleadershipcircle.org. —Brian E.
