This past week, African American politicians and activists from around the U.S. gathered in the nation’s capitol for the annual Congressional Black Caucus weekend, a series of workshops, forums and parties. This year’s meeting had a powerful galvanizing issue: the recent revelation that the CIA was involved in introducing crack-cocaine into the African American community of Los Angeles. Over 2000 people showed up for a forum on this subject last Thursday, sponsored by Representative Maxine Waters of California.
