Dan Perkins , Author, Financial Investment Adviser
Mr. Perkins will speak on a subject that has been in the news for the last few months”Why Black Lives Matter”. He writes for the Hill.com and the Surge and does 100’s of radio shows each month. This is a subject that he researched and will make you think about the subject in a different way.
Mr. Perkins believes for too many years we have ignored some alarming statistics about black people in America. My contention is that for far too long black people have ignored the reality of black people, hence the question. “Do Black Lives Matter to Blacks?”
Let’s start with some basic numbers. According to the 2013 report by the United States Census Bureau 77.7% of the US population is white while 13.2% is black or African American. They also report that the birth rate in the black communities has dropped below the replacement rate. These are just some of the facts that he researched for the publications he writes on a monthly basis. Mr. Perkins also appears all over the country for his books “The Brotherhood of the Red Nile” series and does speaking engagements for his charitable Non-Profit. Songs and Stories for Soldiers.
