20th Annual Sankofa Caravan to the Ancestors Weekend
Oct 20 @ 6:30 pm – Oct 22 @ 1:00 am

Saturday October 21, 2017 the National Black United Front will host the 20th Annual Sankofa: Caravan to the Ancestors. The Sankofa Caravan is an interfaith ancestral commemoration. The event has three key areas of focus: to offer praise and thanksgiving to the creator and our revered African ancestors; to educate our community on African spirituality, history and culture; and to invoke blessings for our community in all worthy endeavors. “Sankofa” is a word from the Akan people of West Africa which challenges people of Afrikan ancestry to “Go Back to Your Past” and bring to the present past values that are needed now. The Caravan will depart from the National Black United Front, Houston Head Quarters at 2428 Southmore Blvd. Houston TX at 7am. Participants are asked to wear all white for spirit.

Often the concept of “Sankofa” is symbolized by a mythical bird which moves forward while looking backward. Certain depictions of the “Sankofa” bird show an egg being held within its beak, symbolizing the future of those yet to be born. If the egg is held too tight then it will break. If the egg is held too loose then it will fall. To embrace the true meaning of “Sankofa” one must move forward while gaining wisdom from the past and exacting the proper balance in preparation for the future.

A Caravan is typically held which makes the “Sankofa” connection relevant through prayer, ritual, African drumming, African dancing, speakers and martial arts.

Dispelling the Myths: The Truth About Black Men @ Shrine of The Black Madonna Cultural and Event Center.
Oct 28 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Who needs Jay-Z’s 4:44 video discussion, when you can openly have the discussion with several Black men in person at the empowering & life changing Dispelling the Myths forum.

12 men of various backgrounds and ages (mid 20’s – mid 50’s) have agreed to openly and honestly answer ANY questions that you may have.

Black men and women are taught to mistrust each other. Black men have negative views of Black women that hinder their communication with Black women and weaken their trust in them. Black women are led to believe that Black men are unreliable, only after sex and are “dogs”. These are myths that we have falling prey to. Until we KNOW the truth we will continue to live the lie!

You will have an opportunity to openly discuss with Black men of various backgrounds how and why Black women are being cheated out of successful relationships.

If you are a single, married, separated or divorced male or female this is one event you do not want to miss. Come prepared with your questions. Be prepared to leave with the truth.

Moderated by Dr. Obari Cartman author of Lady’s Man: Conversations for Young Black Men about Relationships and Manhood.

100% of the proceeds benefit Know Thyself Academy. Know Thyself Academy is recognized as a charitable organization by the IRS.

Wake Up Everybody Convention 2017 @ Radisson Park Inn

“Wake Up Everybody” A National Convention 2017

WHERE ARE THE AFRICAN AMERICAN BRAND MALLS FOR BLACKS AND MINORITIES MERCHANTS AND VENDORS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON 2017? THERE ARE NONE!

AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE TARGETED AS THE NUMBER 1 SPENDERS BUT YOU CANNOT FIND US OR SEE US AS MERCHANTS OR VENDORS IN THE AMERICA MALLS! THEREFORE WE HAVE CREATED:

Many Don’t Celebrate Black Friday or Christmas. Many Would Love To Be In A Major Mall During The Holiday Season But They Won’t Accept Your Products Or If They Do The High Leasing Fee You Can’t Afford. However you do want to EARN MONEY during the holiday season? Or Maybe You Do Celebrate Holidays….. Well We Created This National “Our Holiday” Convention Especially For YOU! Get Your VENDOR’s SPACE TO ENJOY THE PROFITS!

We are expecting 3000 attendance on both Friday and Saturday!

Advertising: Social Media, Comcast T.V, Radio, and Print Ads

Presented By: Malachi’s International and Queens of Africa Intl Foundation U.S.A 916-576-9679, Promoter Moe Mccoy Founder of Fire Proof T.V Inc. 832-996-9593 and Hotel Contact: David L.

Wake Up Everybody Convention is design to bring ALL races or cultures; especially the black race out of darkness and together. This is not your typical Black Movement where you March and no results after. Our mission is to educate each other on economic growth, how to start credit, repair credit, build credit, get rid of debt, how to increase your fico score, how to buy a home, how to buy commercial property, how to registrar your Corporation or LLC, network both domestic and international and learn other valuable educational resources from our panel of guest.

Our Convention will take place the Friday right after Thanksgiving; known to many as “Black Friday.” We want to do something different and POSITIVE on Friday November 24 and Saturday November 25, 2017. We are not celebrating “Black Friday” but allowing the Black Race and other Minorities or Individuals that want to participate to be Empowered and Shop Black and other Minority Products. Everyone is invited to attend and participate.

This is a Happy, Peaceful gathering to try and bring Unity among those who would like to acheive peace, correctly learn, grow, move forward and enjoy life. There are many beautiful, unique and traditional products that are not displayed, showcased or sold during the America created Holiday Shopping Season. Malls in America profit millions doing the holiday season without giving the opportunity to Black owned and minority businesses to take advantage in that profit margin. We know many don’t celebrate Holidays but for those that do or just want the opportunity to market and sell your products we invite you to purchase a vendors space and for support a sponsorship.
