National Black Peoples Unity Convention
March 9 - 12, 2006

The historic 1972 National Black Political Convention that took place in Gary will have a follow-up, but it will focus on economic freedom.  Former Lt. Governor of Colorado George Brown, former Gary mayor Richard Hatcher and Washington, D.C.-based Coalition of Black Trade Unionist President William Lucy are the cohairs.  Economist Dr. Julianne Malveaux is one of several advisors to the convention. In 1972, delegates were selected to participate in the convention.  This year, anyone who pays the $175 registration fee can be part of it, organizers said.

See exclusive interviews with Richard Gordon Hatcher in the November 2005 - January 2006 10th Anniversary print issue and Dr. Julianne Malveaux in the May 2003 - October 2003 print issue of Port of Harlem.  Why miss another print issue?  Subscribe.
