CPAC is the largest and most prominent annual event for the conservative movement. Every year, the conference attracts more than 10,000 attendees and the biggest names in the Republican Party.
The gathering draws speakers from every facet of the activist movement….
…For those of you who do not believe that black conservatives exist, CPAC has assembled a stunning array of speakers from the African-American community. If you are an African American (and even if you are not), you may want to tune in and listen to these speakers.
1. Dr. Benjamin Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery, Johns Hopkins Hospital
This will be the most anticipated speech of the convention. Carson made headlines when he was the keynote speaker at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast. PolicyMic pundit John Giokaris described it as ‘the longest 27 minutes in Obama’s presidency.’ Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, said ‘Dr. Ben Carson represents the optimism and hope of the future of the conservative movement, while at the same time he articulates the deep fiscal and social challenges that our nation faces.’
2. Crystal Wright, editor and publisher, conservativeblackchick.com
Wright describes herself as a triple minority: “[she’s] black, a woman and a Republican living in a Democratic dominated city.” Wright is a communications consultant and through her blog and other media appearances gives voice to black female conservatives. Wright is a leading voice for black female conservatives and writes frequently on conservative issues. Her articles appear regularly on Townhall.com, and she is a PolicyMic pundit….
In addition, the founder of “Did She Say That” and Breitbart News Network”, Sonnie Johnson along with former Congressman and Democrat, Arturo Davis and mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, Mia Love are also among noteworthy Black Conservatives scheduled to speak at CPAC 2013 and of whom will be a thorn in the side of Progressives who believe that they have Black Americans in chains and in their pockets.
