In the continued struggle to free Afrikan people from the vestiges of white supremacy and systematic racism, ASCAC's Eastern Region will be hosting its annual conference on Saturday, October 16, 2021 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm eastern standard time. The theme is the following: "LIBERATING OUR HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH THE WISDOM OF OUR ANCESTORS: BUILDING FOR ETERNITY." ASCAC's Eastern Regional Conference will fall on a historic day in the struggle for Black liberation. Twenty-six years ago, on October 16, 1995, the largest gathering of Afrikan people took place in the history of America. It was called the Million Man March. The event was organized by the leader of the Nation of Islam-the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
