The International Black Summit is a Conversation that is being given by life, to the world, through people of Black African Descent.
The Purpose of the International Black Summit is to provide an opportunity for participants to bring into being their vision for the black community and the world.
"We exist to facilitate the connection, self-expression and empowerment of young people of African descent around the world.
We are young people making our visions real in our communities and exemplifying the principles of youth, transformation, love and possibility as a powerful approach
to the universe."
To provide an opportunity for participants, ages 18 to 35, a space for reflection, communication, mentorship and growth, through vision creation and implementation. This conversation empowers young adults to powerfully transition to adulthood equipped for global success.
WE DECLARE ourselves, our community and all communities whole and complete. There is nothing to do except be.
WE ASSERT that we are responsible for generating community as possibility and distinction. We listen for and grant being to the possibility and creation of unpredictable results. Our conversation of, about, and for those of African descent is one of power, self generation, abundance, responsibility, unity and integrity, with the possibility of being.
WE STAND for the expression of our spirituality; ending the murders of our men, women and children; building economies responsible for funding our community; maintaining wellness of being in our bodies; providing human services; establishing nurturing relationships; altering the conversation of who we are in the media; empowering our youth.
WE DECLARE that our community manifests itself in the world as a contribution in the transformation of the universe.
