[Source: http://www.wschronicle.com] The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is coming to Winston-Salem May 21-22 to keynote a national fund raising effort to help establish and construct the Fuller & Dudley Entrepreneurship Museum. The three-day event begins on Saturday, May 21, at the Benton Convention Center and will feature several national and international business leaders including George Fraser, best selling author of “Success Runs In Our Race,” and creator of Fraser-Net, the nation’s largest professional networking organization; Lisa Nichols, CEO of her own company and best-selling author of six books including, “Chicken Soup For The African-American Soul,” a celebrated trainer, facilitator and life coach whose rags-to-riches success story has fast become a national blueprint for established and aspiring entrepreneurs; Debra Bartlett, the renown Caribbean media mogul and Chairman of the CEO Network; and the legendary founder of Dudley Products, Joe L. Dudley, Sr., best-selling author of “Walking By Faith,” who started the company that bears his name with $10, a dream, a prayer and dogged determination that led him to build what has now become a third-generation black-owned business, a rarity in black America.
Held in honor of the late Chicago-based business tycoon and civic leader, SB Fuller, the nation’s first self-made black male millionaire, and Dr. Dudley’s 79th birthday, the event comes to a dramatic conclusion on Sunday, May 22, at a star-studded black-tie affair featuring the legendary leader of the Nation of Islam, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, whose keynote address will outline plans for business, financial, economic self-sufficiency and community responsibility.
On Sunday, May 22, Joe L. Dudley Sr.’s 79th birthday celebration is a gala black tie event to raise funds for construction of the Fuller – Dudley Entrepreneurship Museum. This is where Minister Farrakhan, the chief organizer of the historic 1995 Million Man March that brought more than a million black men to Washington, D.C., will bring the message to close out this historic event.
An overflow crowd is expected to attend the event which will be held at the Embassy Suites. Advance registration is required. No tickets or registration material will be available at the door. To secure RSVP registration, call 336-782-8383 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
