MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE GLOBAL TOUR: The Truth Tour will launch in October 2018, from CHN’s birthplace of New?Haven, CT, and last through 2020. Later stops on the Tour will include Los Angeles, CA;?Pittsburgh, PA; Baltimore, MD; New York, NY; Kingston, Jamaica; and Johannesburg, South?Africa. In August 2019, the Tour will stop in Richmond, VA, during observances of the 400th?anniversary of the first recorded forced arrival of Africans in the United States. Virginia is the?place in the United States in which the lies about Black people were first cultivated and then?spread throughout the nation. It is, therefore, the place from which CHN and ABPsi will issue a Call to the African Union and the African Diaspora to put the matter of emotional emancipation –?complete freedom from the lies – at the top of the global African agenda. After Richmond, the?Tour will stop in Ghana, West Africa—and continue on from there. People outside of the Tour?cities can join the Truth Campaign by taking the pledge to Defy the Lie and Embrace the Truth?and joining our online community.
