Are You Ready to TRANSFORM Your Life,
Relationships, Business or Community?


How Would You Like an Opportunity to Expand Your Vision for yourself, your family, the Black Community and the World?



August 4th - 7th for the Annual International Black Summit Event!


The International Black Summit is a Conversation - for you, your family, your organization and your community.

  • A Conversation being given by Life to the world through people of black African descent
  • A Conversation that finds it's expression in the Declaration of the International Black Summit.




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.  (Atlanta, Georgia 1991)

OUR STORY & VISION - The International Black Summit began with a conversation between two Black women, Pat Reid-Porter and Aloma Marquis after they participated in an 8 week advance transformational workshop called Productivity and Well-Being.

They begin talking about what would be possible in the Black Community, if the technology they had learned over those eight weeks were shared with the Black Community. What would be possible, if transformational work was shared with the Black Community?

In 1991, the first Summit was held in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a remarkable event that began to reveal the real power of our community. Since then, there has been an International Black Summit Annual Event somewhere in the world every year.

Here are a few comments from our participants:


"At once a skeptic, now a true believer in the IBS experience.  It was truly cleansing.  great people, great fun, great personal growth." 

Rodney, Toronto, ON - Canada

“The International Black Summit has touched me very deeply.  Whatever it is that Slavery has taken from me and from all people of Black African decent.  I say that the Summit puts it back. I’m talking about religion (spirit) dignity and  self-esteem. I’m talking about love and appreciation  for who you are and what you provide. I’m talking about you matter and so do all of us.”

Nancy Simmons - New York, NY - USA


“The Summit conversation provides the best set of tools and road maps for me to live my life in a creative and empowered way. Through my participation in the Summit conversation, I have developed partnerships with others who share my vision of building economies responsible for funding our community; relationships that allow me to mirror my best and grow in my weak areas; and an internal conversation to live my life powerfully and with purpose.”

 Clara Lyons-Devaughn - Cherry Hill, NJ - USA


“What I like so much about IBS is that it does not dictate how I must be in the world….It only helps me to see that the world is in me.”

Theresa McCoy - New York, NY - USA

I have been in a lot of debate with women (Black and non-Black) over the recent abortion ban, and I just wanted to set the story straight regarding the term "Pro-Life", because some people's thought process is that when you claim "Pro-life" status, that it in some way relates to advocating rape and you are in some way celebrating rape and incest and this is my reply.Allow me to begin by saying I support women's rights. I'm all for choice too, so long as you don't kill anybody. However, the…See More
