On Feb 24, 2010, the Henrietta Wells Livermore School of Politics (Host Committee), Manhattan Republican Community Coalition, New York Urban League Young Professionals, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. / Alpha Gamma Lambda Chapter, and distinguished panelists came together to tackle important issues during Black History Month at the third annual Black Forum 2010. This year’s bi-partisan forum focused on Employment, Business, Education, Health Care and Crime, not just politics and Community outreach with a broad and diverse audience in attendance.

The topics in Panel One are Employment / Business (Small Business Development, Corporate Flight, Jobs) Education (School Choice, Options, Vouchers, Trade School, Community Colleges, Mentoring/Community involvement, e.g. OHBM / Eagle Academy)
Part 1 panelists: Charles Payne, David Banks, Tara Dowdell, Marc Lamont Hill, Janks Morton

BTW- There are moments when camera is not still. Had no platform, tripod was used as a mono-pod (so I could elevate above the heads). C’est la vie!It was a great 2 hours and I was very glad to be there.
