Blackwell North Amer
The Covenant with Black America is a national plan of action to address the primary concerns of African Americans today. From health of housing, from crime to criminal justice, from education to economic parity, African Americans continue to face devastating disparities on nearly every level. However the time has come for African Americans to shift the conversation from talking about our pain to talking about our plan.
While statistics often remind us of despair, The Covenant reminds us that there is hope. This document is offered as a roadmap and a reminder that it is our responsibility as an entire community to ensure that no mother, father, or child be left behind politically, socially, or economically. We all have a role in creating the world we want for generations to come.
