MSU is a black college in Maryland chaired by black power activist, and former head of the NAACP, Kweisi Mfume. It has 8,000 students. The event was called the Black United Summit International Conference. The event was organized by the NOI and sponsored by the MSU Student Government. NOI leader Louis Farrakhan was the keynote speaker. Several other leaders of the NOI also spoke.
Over 2,000 people attended and heard NOI leader Louis Farrakhan deliver a violent speech calling for race war. Most were extremely enthusiastic about the message.
The student president, student vice president, and leaders of many other student organizations and fraternities were all in attendance. Numerous members of the MSU faculty attended. Also present was Maryland State Representative Jill Carter.
Other speakers include Marshall Eddie Conway, a former Black Panther leader who spent 44 years in prison. Pam Africa, a former member of the notoriously violent MOVE group in Philadelphia.
Louis Farrakhan depicted attorney Benjamin Crump, Jesse Jackson, Barak Obama, and Eric Holder as part of what he called the “pacifiers” and “cowardly punkified black leadership.” He said these people are trying to stop the explosion of justifiable violence against “the white man’s tyranny on black people.”
