We’re covering the 101st NAACP National Convention in Kansas City this week. The scheduled speakers include First Lady Michelle Obama (on Monday, July 12th), Lisa Jackson – Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous and a host of others. We’re particularly interested in a panel which will include Senator Roland Burris (Illinois), Representative Barbara Lee (California), Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee (Texas), and Representative Bobby Scott (Virginia).
