I ask myself the question often, who are America's real black leaders today?
Luckily, I know someone who wears the mantle of black leadership at the local level, my friend Annie Polite. She really is a good person to know 'round these parts, and is very involved in the community. When she is in the room, her very presence flies in the face of the media's irresponsible portrayal of Black America.
On the national level, I wonder if Bruce Gordon will be the man who brings the NAACP back to national relevance.
