The event keynote speaker, Candace Owens is the founder of the BLEXIT foundation, an organization dedicated to driving conservative principles into urban communities. She is also a published author, speaker, and host of the weekly “Candace Owens Show”


Candace exploded onto the scene in the summer of 2017, gaining notoriety through her political vlog series on Youtube.

She has since spoken at over 60 American Universities, challenging the leftist status quo and insisting that students think beyond the confines of liberal orthodoxy.


With over 250 Fox News appearances, Owens has substantiated herself as a leader among the growing youth conservative movement.

Prior to her entrepreneurial pursuits, Owens worked at a private equity firm in Manhattan, serving as the Vice President to their administration. She attended the University of Rhode Island and took executive training courses at the NYU Stern School of Business. 

Candace views it as her life’s mission to help minority groups escape the Left’s victim narrative.

Owens argues that government assistance is a double-edged sword, that the Left dismisses the faith so important to the black community, that Democrat permissiveness toward abortion disproportionately affects the black babies, that the #MeToo movement hurts black men and much more.


Weaving in her personal story, which ushered her from a low-income, roach-infested apartment to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she demonstrates how she overcame her setbacks and challenges despite the cultural expectation that she should embrace a victim mentality.  Read more about Candace Owens at
