The 2011 Saviours' Day convention marks the 81st year of the Nation of Islam's existence in North America. Each year, to commemorate the birth of its founder Master W. Fard Muhammad (February 26, 1877), thousands of members and supporters of the Nation of Islam from around the world make the journey to attend the annual convention during the last week of February for a weekend of fellowship, networking, information dissemination and spiritual renewal.
Also during Saviours' Day, some of the best academic minds, entertainers and activists come together for strategizing, organizing and mobilization.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan's Saviours' Day messages are always timely as he marvelously deals with current events, spiritual realities, prophecies and solutions to the problems plaguing the Black community in particular and humanity in general. This year's message is scheduled to be delivered at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL., on Sunday, February 27.
