Britain’s exit from the European Union has not been smooth sailing. Since the leave date has been pushed back to October, Nigel Farage is now running for a seat in the European Parliament. That election date is May 23 which has forced him to cancel all American speaking engagements, including our Annual Dinner.
Center of the American Experiment is pleased to announce that Candace Owens, the founder of the Blexit movement and host of The Candace Owens Show, will now be presenting the keynote address at our 2019 Annual Dinner on May 18. We are excited to host Ms. Owens for the second time, after having her for a sell-out crowd of 550 at a lunch forum.
Candace Owens is the founder of the BLEXIT foundation, an organization dedicated to driving conservative principles into urban communities.
Owens exploded onto the scene in the summer of 2017, gaining notoriety through her political vlog series on YouTube. She has since spoken at over 50 American Universities, challenging the leftist status quo and insisting that students think for themselves. With over 250 Fox News appearances over the last year alone, 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. 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.
