But is respectfully requested. The Meeting is on the historic weekend leading to the Inauguration of Barack Obama as the first African American president of the United States of America. RSVP is requested for those who intend to “take the Nat Turner Living History Tour,” or “feast on the great dinner afterwards.” Participation in the morning and evening 2 hour meetings are free! [10 am & 4 p.m] H. Khalif Khalifah, the founder and president of UBUS Communications Systems is sponsoring a “Summit Meeting” to assess ISSUES effective approaches to continue the Independent Black struggle of Black people to Freedom, Justice and Equality. “Traditional Black politicians and others who see inclusion in ‘The American experiment’ as the way to achieve freedom from chattel slavery, oppression, 2nd class citizenship and other forms of oppression” are re-assessing their own approaches to achieve equality under the laws of the USA. “Black nationalist and Independent Community Organizers and other activists are also assessing our approaches to win our Freedom.” Said Khalifah Khalifah has been called, “the Father of Independent Publishing.” He unconditionally endorsed Barack Obama for president before the Primary began in 2008. But he is not “expecting any favors from him,” and no doubt he will not get any. “What we will get is some of the same energy Barack tapped into to win the presidency. The energy is there, but you must be busy activating your programs like never before. If you don’t have any programs, or agendas but know something must happen in Black America, OTHER than the ‘change’ Barack and the mass majority of his supporters ‘believe in,’ the Summit Conference will network your ideals with the ideals of like minded people. “We must not be marginalized in 2008. We have a great opportunity to ‘energize’ our Noble struggle for independence and freedom. This cannot be done unless we are actively struggling for the same freedoms that our most celebrated Black would-be-liberators gave their lives to during our 400 years of oppression.” Some of the champions for independent freedom were: Gabriel Prosser, Denmark Vesey, Nat Turner, Marcus Garvey, Noble Drew Ali, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, Kwame Toure, Ralph Featherstone, Clarence 13X, Huey P. Newton, Robert Mendencees Harris, John Henric Clarke, Amos N. Wilson, Kofi Brown, Queen Mother Moore, W. E. B. Dubois, Brother Lumumba Odinga, Nana Butwiku Ekow, Robert Williams and too many others to name. “Black nationalist issues are very well defined. They are written in the Blood, Sweat and Tears of Black people whose aspirations for freedom was not in variance with what Barack Obama, or Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., i.e. desired. But freedom for the ancestors named INCLUDED Reparations and Self-Determination all across the Socialization process in every society where we find ourselves as a people.” Reparations will be the focal point for both meetings. But “Community Organizers” and “Black Activist” focal issues: like Police Brutality, Health Care, Education, Kwanzaa, Food Co-ops [organic and Natural] will take up most of the time during both meetings. The Summit Meetings will be in the Khalifah Library: 26070 Barhamshills Road, Southampton County, Virginia 23844. Registration is $60.00; it includes The Nat Turner Trail Tour Saturday Afternoon and dinner Saturday evening. There will be an “Open House” tour of The Khalifah Estates on Sunday and Monday.
