THE AFRICAN AMERICAN
Establishing a New Standard of African American Leadership in Research, Public Policy, Business, and Education
The history of African Americans in Texas and throughout America is one of resilience, innovation, and triumph. However, despite some limited success, the African American community has been impaired by decades of neglect, insensitivity, and the inability of leadership to develop and implement plans to sustain its core institutions and people.
We will study and promote the advancement of public policy, economic development, education, and leadership development as it relates to the African American community in North Central Texas and throughout the state of Texas.
We advance and inform, through research and teaching, the political decision-making process to empower and promote the African American community.
