Presenters Name and Email:
Dr. Luonne Rouse
Dr. Lounne Rouse is National Co-Chair of the American Clergy Leadership Conference-ACLC which is made up of over 1,000 clergy of all denominations whose purpose is to rebuild the family, restore the community, renew the nation and the world.
Dr. Norris Shelton is the author of 25 books and is considered the Father of the Descendants of Slaves movement.
Norris Shelton underwent a racial awakening that took him on a journey seeking his true ethnic identity. This experience, he reports, allowed him to view America without the normal prejudices the average American has inherited. His journey took him to the very depths of American consciousness. Scrutinizing true American history, he determined there is an ongoing injustice in America, an atrocious crime that is being covered up. He asked himself: Should this injustice be allowed to continue? If so, why? What is the justification? Why is such obvious inequality in a country that boasts of freedom for all allowed to continue? When he tried to explain his findings, even to his closest associates, he discovered that, because of bigotry, fear and shame, his summation was far too enigmatic for the average American, black or white, to fully appreciate.
