Anthony Brian Logan, political news commentator and YouTuber, will be among hundreds of black conservatives visiting the White House during the Young Black Leadership Summit Oct. 25-28, in Washington D.C. Mr. Logan currently resides in Chattanooga.

The conference is sponsored by Turning Point USA and invites young black conservatives between the ages of 15 and 35 to hear from some of the nation’s most prominent conservative leaders and activists. Attendees will receive first-class professional development, leadership training and networking opportunities. The event includes a visit to the White House.

Featured guest speakers include Dr. Ben Carson, radio commentator Larry Elder, actress Stacy Dash, and Turning Point USA’s communications director Candace Owens. Also attending will be a host of social influencers, like Logan, whose goal is to foster a sense of community among black Americans with conservative views.

“We seek to empower people and give them the tools necessary to return to their communities and share the values of conservatism to others,” Mr. Logan said. “The black conservative movement is key to the survival of not only blacks in America, but of the United States of America as a whole.”

Mr. Logan, a YouTuber with more than 220,000 subscribers and over 35 million views, says he’s always listening to the concerns of the black community. He says family court reform is on the top of the list.

“A lot of black men are being buried under child support debt and unfair treatment when it comes to custody issues,” Mr. Logan said. “You also have many black women that are being misled by the purveyors of the ever-present welfare state. This contributes to broken families.”

The Virginia Beach, Va. native says illegal immigration is also a pressing issue in the black community.

“Contrary to popular belief, there is an upswing of support in the black community for the Southern Border wall and also legal immigration reform,” he said. “Many black areas across the country are being overrun and dominated by people from foreign lands who are here illegally.”

Mr. Logan says black Americans have been depended on as a bedrock Democratic voting base “for too many years.” He says the goal of the conference is to shed light on the reality that many black people grew up conservative, though not politically, and to someday unify the black community under the banner of America’s core values.

“Many of us are walking around lost with a sense of emptiness,” he said. “This void can and will be filled by bridging the gap between how the majority of us were raised and a matching political viewpoint.”
