Our National Leadership
No Nation can stand without capable and committed leadership. The Black Gold Nation is no different. To accomplish our goal of building a national leadership body that serves to protect the melanated population of America, we made history in July of 2018 by having the first national Black leadership election. For almost a year we campaigned to identify, vet, nominate, and vote for Black people who, based on their expertise, experience, and demonstrated commitment and love for our people, would serve in a leadership capacity.
