Illinois Review –
ST. CHARLES – While the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech is being celebrated in DC Saturday, a week from today Illinois conservatives will have the opportunity to embrace and honor leaders in the Black Conservative movement at the first Black Conservative Summit in St. Charles Illinois.
Dr. Eric Wallace is organizing the effort and is looking forward to Illinois conservatives learning more about what they have in common with Black Conservatives on issues such a jobs, education and the family. “We welcome all colors to our Black Conservative Summit next Saturday at Pheasant Run,” Wallace told Illinois Review. “The more we break through skin color barriers, the more likely we are to join forces to bring real change to Illinois and the nation.”
Wallace says the effort to reach out to voters based on skin color is misled. “Blacks, browns and whites have much in common because we all know that the Democrats have promised everything and delivered little over the decades. We need to address the black community’s deep problems and everyone benefits when that happens,” he said.
The theme for this year’s gathering is “Defending the Natural Family: R.I.S.E to Rebuild the Foundation of Black America.” The summit will focus on a number of critical issues ranging from education to economic policy, in general, within the context of the “Natural Family.”
