  1. I believe that the President requires our support to push a black agenda and the agenda must be framed in ‘American’ terms.

  2. I totally agree with Mr. Wimberly “that The President requires our support to push a black agenda..” This is why after the successful Historical 2012 Chicago National Black Agenda that the National Black Agenda Consortium has built this Website as a first step and tool to educate, organize and mobilize African Americans and people of African descent to collaboratively address the myriad of issues affecting our communities locally, nationally and internationally.
