Press Release:

    BATH, NC     Clarence Henderson and Addul Ali will deliver the keynote address "Passing the Torch to the Next Generation" at the Reagan Republican Rally on Tuesday, October 4, at Southern Acres on NC Highway 92 in Bath. This annual fundraiser is sponsored by the Beaufort County Republican Party.

    Many will recall the young African American men who started a sit-in at the Woolworth lunch counter in 1960. On the second day of the Greensboro sit-in, Clarence Henderson and William Smith joined Joseph A. McNeil and Franklin E. McCain at the lunch counter. On the fifth day, 300+ students joined the protest. Heavy television coverage of the Greensboro sit-in sparked a sit-in movement that quickly spread to college towns throughout the South and into the North, as young black and white people joined peaceful protests against segregation in libraries, beaches, hotels, and other establishments.

    Henderson's experience at the forefront of the civil rights battle, his energetic involvement in his church, and his life's journey as a teacher, college administrator, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker, give him a unique perspective on what confronts society today. While he has lived through many episodes of civil unrest, he strives to bring awareness and change peacefully.

    Henderson is a champion for freedom and conservative values. His message will inspire and teach how to change the narrative in this nation, from "Liberty for a few" to "Liberty for All!" Henderson serves on the advisory board of Conservative Black Voices for Trump; he also serves as the NC State President of the Frederick Douglass Foundation.

    Addul Ali also serves at the Frederick Douglass Foundation (NC)-as operations director. In addition, Ali is the chair of the Republican Party of Cabarrus County. Together, Henderson and Ali work to grow the Foundation across the state.

    Ali is chair of the NCGOP Black Conservative Voices Coalition which played a vital role in growing the black vote for Donald Trump and the Republican Party in 2020. He has worked with Candace Owens as State Chapter Advisor for BLEXIT NC. You can hear him every Monday at 8 p.m. on The Urban Conservative Podcast.

    The program includes a solo by Nikki Selby of Belhaven. In addition, Michael Whatley, NC GOP Chair, will moderate a mini panel discussion with the candidates for the NC Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.

    Again this year, a silent auction is part of the event. Items include a private airplane ride, a handmade quilted wall hanging, baked goods, and a variety of local artwork. Don't forget your checkbooks!

    The Beaufort County GOP supports Republican candidates and keeps Republicans informed about legislation, events, and issues. Funds raised at the rally will be used to promote Republicans on the local ballot in November.

    The Reagan Republican Rally begins at 5:30 p.m. with registration, cash bar, appetizers, the silent auction, a photo booth, and ample time to meet and greet fellow Republicans. The program and meal begin at 7:00 p.m. Individual tickets are $50 and sponsorships range from $20 to $500.

    Advance tickets are required; tickets are on sale online at (debit/credit card payment) and at the county GOP headquarters in Washington Plaza (cash or check payment).
