Conservative activist Candace Owens will speak to a private reception May 17 during the GOP state convention in Oshkosh, a party spokesman said.

Owens, the communications director for the pro-Trump group Turing Point USA, has gained fame as a leader of “Blexit,” an effort to persuade African Americans to leave the Dem Party. She’s also drawn controversy for various remarks, including about Adolph Hitler.

She will speak at the hospitality suite hosted by the Wisconsin Young Republicans, the Winnebago County GOP and Darryl Carlson, who serves on the state party Executive Board as the 6th CD chair, a state party spokesman said. The event will be closed to the media.
