Kuuleme Stephens was born and raised in Tucson, AZ and she has an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration. She is one of the Co-Founders of The Last Civil Right and a co-author of a newly released book titled “The White Folks Guide to Understanding the Black Community, and Get Out the Vote”. She is also a member of the Tea Party, the Disabled American Veterans, the NRA, an Arizona Republican Committeewoman, and a proud United States Navy Veteran. Her articles have been featured on Red White and Blue News, Herman Cain PAC, Enidnews.com, Rightlinksblogs.com, Amplify.com, The Conservative Praetorian, The Rowdy Republican, and many others. She is known for her “pit bull” personality and does not back down. She is comfortable in all forums and excels in debating with Liberals. Where most people chose to end a conversation, because they see it as Liberals are not worth their time in a debate, Kuuleme sees it as her golden chance educate them. Kuuleme has a record of converting Liberals into Independents on her Facebook Page and that is considered a very big thing in the Black Community, and for the Conservative Movement. She takes a lot of heat being a Black Conservative, but is very thick skinned and keeps on fighting for her core beliefs. No one seems to be able to intimidate her and she proves very vocal and knowledgeable in her views. Kuuleme serves as the mouth piece on Radio for The Last Civil Right because of her very vocal and take no prisoners style. She is a Conservative Independent, not a Republican, as her co-authors on the Last Civil Right. People often get that confused because most of her views and stances are leaning Republican. Kuuleme is a high demand TV and Radio guest and never fails to jam the call in lines.

Vanessa Anderson stands as a proud Black Female Conservative because she has allowed her faith to shape her moral and political views. She works as a Character Development Consultant helping individuals, especially Women and Black Women in particular, understand the importance of living their Christian values. When one lives their values, it makes life easier, prevents a lot of unnecessary heartache and it brings peace, joy, clarity and economic and mental wealth. It is critical that women (and young girls) realize their self worth. While her messages are universal, She focuses on Blacks for two reasons: She is Black and Democrats have focused on Blacks for hundreds of years and the results of that focus are horrific. Her goal is to help emancipate Blacks from economic slavery that the deceptions of Democrats have created for many of us.
As a nation, Vanessa believes it’s time for us to re-evaluate our values, toss what is ungodly and embrace God’s guidance and be driven by values that are biblically sound. She believes the benefit of doing this will create individuals who are their own fisherman, which ultimately leads to a more prosperous, functional, united and healed nation… and who wouldn’t want that!?
Donna Johnson has a Bachelor of Science Degree from The College of New Jersey but also enjoyed her early years at Tennessee State University. Professionally, she has owned an African-American Bookstore in Willingboro, NJ, spent two years as a Real Estate Consultant and currently is a landlord; has been a group fitness instructor and has worked as a Human Resources Consultant for over 25 years focusing on strategic staffing, employment branding, career counseling/coaching, recruitment and the outplacement process.
Being controversial, outspoken and opinionated comes naturally and has been a part of this Black woman’s spirit for almost 60 years. Growing up in Evanston, IL during the 50s, then traveling around the country with a step-father in the Air Force, Donna has learned to adapt to many situations, to connect with people quickly and to be comfortable and confident in any situation. She attended Ramey High School in Puerto Rico and infamously coordinated a “student protest” in her junior year that would be a precursor to the life journey she would face.
As a young adult/college student in the 70s, she “inhaled”, excelled academically, embraced life with a mission to fight for what is right and championed all causes that uplifted and encouraged Black people; and would have been considered a Liberal by any measure for several decades.
Donna believes that education, attitude, and choices are more important than any other factors in determining the altitude of the goals reached in life. Her political persuasion is more closely aligned with an Independent Constitutional Conservative ideology. However, her online approach is to welcome dialogue from everyone, but specifically those who are rigidly focused on the left, with the idea that sharing information will minimally enlighten those who take the time to discourse, which usually leads to learning, but not necessarily agreement. Like all Black Conservatives, she is constantly attacked but is sharp-witted, articulate and enjoys the challenge of debate. Known for being outspoken, outrageous, blunt, a little acerbic at times, she will get your attention one way or another and hopefully you will laugh, smile, learn and perhaps call her crazy! Because after all, if you don’t learn something and enjoy the journey, what is the point?
