The issues of Black folks only take center stage a few times a year in any substantive and collective way: the annual NAACP convention, the National Action Network convention, maybe a fraternity or sorority event, (R.I.P. to Tavis’ "State of Black America")...Alas, for the most part, our needs as a collective don’t merit a lot of large scale convenings. This is why the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference (CBC ALC) is so important.
