Continuing to struggle during such tough economic times in the United Stated and trying to assist those in Haiti after suffered such tragedy, the country seems to need guidance and reassurance that a better day will come to fruition.

On February 26 and 27, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will be in attendance for the Nation of Islam’s Annual Saviour’s Day Convention where he plans to address the ongoing woes of the country and the world.

Special guests such as Wyclef Jean, Raheeem DeVaughn, Frank Lucas and ‘The Real Freeway’ Rick Ross will be there to show their continued support.

This will serve as the 80th year anniversary of the Nation of Islam’s service to the Black community along with others that are victims to oppression in the country.

With the convention being held at the Stephens Convention Center in Illinois, Farrakhan will deliver a keynote address, “The Time and What Must Be Done”, on February 28 at the United Center 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 also looks to address Haiti as the country continues to lend its support for the country.

“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.
