National Black Coalition @ Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Aug 4 – Aug 6 all-day

Welcome, everyone to Our 1st annual Black Conference. This conference is long overdue and is the official conference representing the African Diaspora. The main purpose of this conference to:

1. Put in nominations for our official Black Gov’t.

2. Begin the process of establishing a Collective Treasury.

3. Explore investment opportunities (real estate).

4. Establish a central care line/website/media outlet which brings us all together, allows us to express any concerns we are having publicly to form a sense of collectivism/unity and support. Keep us all on the same page.

These have been understood to be some of our major issues. No doubt, this is only the 1st annual conference. We must take this slowly, it is understood that it will take time to addresss most of our issues but we must start somewhere. I am very happy to have been blessed with the idea for this conference as well as the knowledge to understand why it is important. Who really knows why we have had to go through the things we’re been through as a people? Hey, maybe this is the stuff greatness is made of it reminds me of a quote of mine which says, “we are the ancestors of a great people.” Therefore, all we canreally do is, first, learn who we are- in reality. And then, put one foot in front of the other and keep it moving. That’s it. So here we are. We’re here. Lets make the best of it.

With guest speakers:

Brother Polight

Our Black Conference is the first annual Black Consciousness Conference with aims to unify black people from the world over in order to counter political issues and to educate and liberate black people. Our black conference will include speakers, music and discussion around political organizing.

Black Student Fund & Latino Student Fund Annual School Fair @ Washington Convention Center | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

The Black Student Fund’s commitment to bringing independent schools and black families together led to the creation of the Annual School Fair in 1972. The Fair quickly became an effective student venue and continues to be one of the largest school fairs of its kind in the region. For forty years, the BSF/LSF School Fair  has provided a networking opportunity for thousands of families in the metropolitan area to meet with representatives from more than sixty independent schools. Parents and prospective students get first-hand knowledge about each school’s programs, community, admissions requirements and financial aid process. In addition, the fair features interactive seminars focused on the admissions process, the financial aid process and personal/family financial management. Since 2009, the Latino Student Fund (LSF) has collaborated with BSF on the event in an effort to increase Latino student enrollment at local independent schools.
