Live October 23rd at 5pm EST

The Fifth Annual
All Black National Convention

“Power, Politics & Purpose”

Join us live October 23rd - 25th for The Fifth Annual All Black National Virtual Convention Hosted By Dr. Watkins, Expert Panelist, and Guest Speakers 


Note: Due to Covid this event will be held virtually this year. We look forward to seeing you online this year. 

The most pivotal presidential election in United States history is less than a month away.

Trump. Biden. Republican. Democrat. No matter who you decide to vote for, your biggest vote should be to the Black community. Voting at the ballot box is fine, but there needs to be something more. Something long-lasting that isn't threatened by the political whims of a white supremacist system that is either indifferent or actively against the needs of its Black citizens. What we need now is true Black Power.

The need for your voice to be heard is just as prevalent today as it was years ago. The future of the Black community shouldn't be decided by a presidential candidate. You have the power to control the future of your family and finances.

The greatness and unique ability of black people to overcome the challenges that lie in front of us right now requires that we lean on our God-given greatness and learn from those who share information that will empower us for the future.

The rich history of black people fighting in the struggle is one that defines the essence of who we are as a people. We have lifted mountains and done the extraordinary. We've overcome obstacles that are simply unimaginable for mere mortals.

Join us for the Fifth Annual All Black National Convention being hosted by the Black Business School.


Every year, we gather the brightest minds and leaders who have dedicated their lives and careers to help the Black community reach their own financial Juneteenth. 


This year, we're at it again with another jam-packed 2 day event covering every topic from finances, to women empowerment.


This is the one event you must attend!

What You Will Learn From The Conference:

  • How to Get Off The Corporate Plantation
  • How to Get Your Business Off of The Ground
