There is nothing like flying over the city of Chicago in the middle of the winter. I love seeing the snow covering the whole city and it gives me a reason to put on warm clothing. Now I cant lie, it is a little chilly out here. Maybe that is because I had to walk half a mile to the shuttle service from the airport. Maybe it was because I had to stand out in the cold for thirty minutes, for a shuttle they said would be here in ten minutes. I enjoyed standing outside looking at the buildings and thinking "what if" we owned all of these building? How all of the money we could be bringing in as a Nation.
My hotel is very comfortable, well maybe that is why they call it the Comfort Inn. They have great service. The shuttle driver took me to Target. Yes Target. Now I have bottle water. ha ha ha lol. I will not be paying $10 for bottle water at the Convention Center. They even said that if I want to get something to eat, the shuttle driver will take me. WHAT! Oh yes, I will be milking them all weekend.
Now that I am situated for Saviours Day, I have to figure what am I going to get my fiance for Saviours Day? Any suggestions? I pray that I can see all of you soon. I am very excited to be around the believers and we will have so much fun. Oh yeah, come to the INation Media Workshop. We have so much to offer this year.
I love you all and I pray that you have a safe journey.
Nation of Islam celebrates 80 years of service to the Black community and the country; Minister Farrakhan to provide divine guidance during these uncertain times
Star-studded guests to include Wyclef Jean, Raheem DeVaughn, Susan Taylor, Dr. Iyanla Vanzant, Allen Hughes, Frank Lucas, and ‘The Real Freeway’ Rick Ross
CHICAGO—With extremely tough economic times, high levels of crime and violence, a confusing new political reality, and the fear of more horrific natural disasters such as the recent earthquake in Haiti, guidance from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is needed now more than ever.
The Nation of Islam’s Annual Saviours’ Day Convention will be held February 26 and 27, at the Stephens Convention Center, located at 5555 N. River Road in Rosemont, IL and culminate with a keynote address “The Time and What Must Be Done” by the leader of the Nation of Islam on Feb. 28 at the United Center located at 1901 W. Madison in Chicago.
“I intend in my Saviours’ Day address to provide Divine warning and guidance from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to the Black community to the American people and to our brother, President Barack Obama,” said Min. Farrakhan. “It is critical that everyone understand the time in which we live so that we can act in the manner that could save our lives,” he continued.
Established in 1930, this year’s convention marks the 80th year of the Nation of Islam’s service to the oppressed and down trodden in North America. Each year, to also commemorate the birth of Master W. Fard Muhammad—the founder of the Nation of Islam—members, world leaders, celebrities, and supporters from all walks of life make the journey to Chicago to attend the annual assembly. The weekend of events equips attendees with the necessary tools to forge self-improvement, community empowerment and global change.
Among the many expected to attend this year include several high profile names such as Raheem DeVaughn, “the Real Freeway” Rick Ross, Frank Lucas, Wyclef Jean, former Jamaican Ambassador Dudley Thompson, Pam Africa, Filmmaker Allen Hughes, Iyanla Vanzant and Susan Taylor of the National Cares Mentoring Movement.
During the entire weekend, much attention will be placed on the current disaster in Haiti where Min. Farrakhan has already been marshalling aid and assistance efforts from the Black community.
“Haiti needs all the assistance she can get. We in the Nation of Islam are organizing our efforts to provide relief and in the spirit of the Million Man March, The Millions Women’s March and the Millions More Movement we encourage everyone to organize their efforts into a National Response to Haiti “If we come together and speak with one voice and use the brightest and best of our minds to organize an effective response to this from the entire Black and Hispanic community of America, what a statement that would make. After we assess what we have done and the success of it, we have a working model for bad days that may soon come upon us,” said Min. Farrakhan.
The Saviours’ Day Convention begins at 9:00 am on Friday February 26 in Rosemont and culminates with the Saviours’ Day address on Sunday. Doors open at 12 noon at the United Center and the program begins at 2:00 pm. For media credentials and more information visit the Saviours’ Day website at www.noisd.org.

When and where did you attend your first Saviours Day? Chicago, IL 1997
What is one of your most memorable moments? I was a part of the LA Vanguard drill team in 1997. It was my first Saviours' Day (I had just registered in May 1996), I was new to the VG class and I was going to be drilling in front of the whole Nation! It was such a beautiful experience to become one with our VG drill team. What I remember most was our collective love for our Nation and the sisterhood as well as how close knit our team was. It was the defining moment for me in the Nation and became my first opportunity to really love and appreciate black women as a whole.
