    State of the Black Union 2006: Defining the Agenda

    In the first panel of an afternoon session of State of the Black Union 2006 titled, “Defining the African American Agenda, Part II,” participants focused on the State of the Black Union 2005 proposal for a covenant with black America. Panelists discussed the challenges facing the black community, ideas proposed in the book, The Covenant with Black America, and future leadership within the black community. They also talked about the impact of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast communities and the significance of poor federal response efforts to the disaster for future national policy. They also responded to questions submitted by members of the audience.

    The Covenant with Black America, published by Third World Press, was edited by Tavis Smiley who moderated the panel. It outlines ten issues identified by the public: education, criminal justice system, police accountability, healthcare and well being, economic development and employment, housing and community development, participating in the democratic process, information technology, rural communities, and environmental justice.

    Angela Blackwell was misidentified on-screen.

    In the first panel of an afternoon session titled “State of the Black Union 2005: Defining the African American Agenda,” Tavis Smiley moderated a discussion on framing a contract or covenant to advance issues of concern to the African American community and to establish a new direction for the black community to effect social and political change. Among the issues they discussed were the role of black religious, political, and intellectual leaders in the community, defining the most prominent issues to the community, and how the contract, or covenant, should be presented to both the black community and American society as a whole. They also talked about diversity within the black community and using the covenant or contract as a unifying document. 

    The event was held at the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.
