(AllHipHop News) The Nation of Islam and Minister Louis Farrakhan are currently in the midst of hosting their annual Saviours’ Day 2012 Convention in Chicago, Illinois.
As part of tonight’s (February 24) convention activities, AllHipHop.com will co-host “Our Generation Accepting Responsibility”, a youth Hip-Hop town hall meeting and live webcast. The full lineup of panelists include Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, Masta Killa, and Divine, along with rappers Cormega, Lah Tere, Jasiri X, G.O.O.D. Music’s Malik Yusef, Lady of Rage, and Min. Farrakhan’s special assistant, Student Minister Ishmael Muhammad.
The “Our Generation Accepting Responsibility” webcast will air live on www.AllHipHop.com at 8:00PM EST TONIGHT.
Grouchy Greg Watkins, AllHipHop.com’s co-founder and CEO, will serve as discussion moderator with Ashahed Muhammad of the national Final Call newspaper, with hosting from radio personality Trey “The Choklit Jock” and Urban Grind TV’s Arminda “Princess” Foster.

The weekend-long Saviours’ Day gathering of the 82-year-old Nation of Islam sect draws approximately 5,000 attendees each year to participate in plenary sessions, panel discussions, religious ceremonies, a concert and fashion show, and more. The convention’s most significant draw will likely come on this Sunday, as Min. Farrakhan delivers a special address on “What 2012 Will Bring to America, The World, and Black and Oppressed People.”
