The Future Leaders Conference was founded in 2015 by Glenn Singleton, publisher of Black History USA, an annual Black History Calendar. Mr. Singleton created the conference as an opportunity for youth to be exposed to Community Leaders and Role Models who have made historically significant contributions to their communities. The conference also recognizes a leader each year with the Black History USA Community Award.
African Americans have been making a difference in their communities, businesses, and our society for decades. They are Mayors of major cities, CEO's of Fortune Five Hundred Companies, Entrepreneurs of businesses small and large, and President of the United State of America. Although African Americans have accomplished great things, today's youth still face unique challenges across the board.
We are excited to be celebrating our fourth year anniversary and continuing to support and educate the youth, who are our future. The conference is excited to introduce today's youth to the individuals who have achieved enormous success and made positive impacts in their chosen careers, so that they understand they can achieve their goals and be successful in the paths they choose in life.
