EMPOWERMENT
Saturday - 3:10PM: The Convention Center's Great Hall

As President of the National Urban League since 2003. Marc H. Morial has been the primary catalyst for an era of change -- a transformation for the century-old civil rights organization. His energetic and skilled leadership has expanded the League’s work around an Empowerment agenda, which is redefining civil rights in the 21st century with a renewed emphasis on closing the economic gaps between Whites and Blacks as well as rich and poor Americans.(Also see Marc Morial during the National Urban League segment on Friday, July 4 at 11:PM)
