National Black Political Convention

May 02, 1996

The National African American Leadership Summit is pulling together a national black political convention this summer to precede the Democratic National Convention in Chicago and the Republican National Convention in San Diego. The convention is a follow-up to coalition-building efforts over the past year, including the Million Man March. What’s on the agenda for this convention and is this strategy a wise one? What is Minister Louis Farrakhan’s role in this process?


Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Convener of the National African American Leadership Summit and Executive Director of the Million Man March.
