The greatest experience of my life. That’s truly what it was. Something so magnificent, I’m sure my words will do it no justice.
A friend of mine posted “Wow, I had no idea, however, it must of been great being surrounded by Black Conservative like minded individuals.”
She was right.
To be Black in America, is to automatically be labeled defacto liberal and Democrat. For all the talk about inclusiveness and acceptance it’s the greatest irony that Black Conservatives are left out of that blanketed of protection and tolerance. Nevertheless, we are breaking through regardless and this past weekend June 22nd -24th 2018 marks the day of new beginnings. This is the day that the “Left” stood still. Many of them no doubt are in seriously panic mode right now.
Black Conservatives, multiple Black Trump Supporters, all with different levels of influence and reach coming together. This is a travesty for the Democrat Party, but a major win for the Freedom Movement. Truly I feel so blessed to had been apart of this event. A gathering of ideas, a gathering of true intellectuals and that were all Black.
Brandon Tatum said to me “Black Folks don’t come together for anything, not on the left or the right.” He went on to say “He wanted to create and event but much more an environment that we folks start communicating with each other, networking with one another and assisting one another in our respective fields.
I can go on and on writing about how great these men and woman are that I met. I could talk about Kevin’s Corner a man of honor. I can see why so many have gravitated to his message. I could talk the Haye Brothers they are literally the Black Male versions of Diamond and Silk. I could talk about how Terrence K. Williams kept us all dying laughing with conservative humor, David Harris Jr an his morality was felt through my soul, Brandon’s leadership, Candace’s insider information and insight. Amazing Lucas and his refusal to go along with the status quo, Will Johnson’s patriotism, Everyone brought something unique to the table, all the men and women of this event was so amazing. Hotep Jesus made us remember why we were there (Pro-Black), Megan Harris a youth perspective, Anthony Brown logan’s intelligence and Jermain Botsio’s accountability.
An let’s not forget James T Harris reminding us that there were others before us who stood alone in this movement for freedom and liberty.
