St. Louis, MO. The Organization for Black Struggle (OBS) sends its heartfelt condolences to the families of the three victims who died today at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School.

The National Black Political Convention was a critical milestone in the struggle for Black political power. Members of the Congress of African People played a key role in organizing for the convention as well as for the assemblies around the Black agenda that followed. This panel will explore the need for a renewed call for
a national political agenda, learning from the lessons of Gary and other subsequent gatherings.
