I want to give a shout out to my fellow AfroSpear member Dallas Progress, who recently join Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s Urban Policy Committee.

Part of Senator Obama's plan is to create a “White House Office of Urban Policy to develop a strategy for metropolitan America and to ensure that all Federal dollars targeted to urban areas are effectively spent on the highest-impact programs. The Director of Urban Policy will report directly to the President and coordinate all
Federal urban programs.”

This is Dallas Progress’s blog:

In addition, nine African American bloggers have been credentialed to join the Democratic National Convention (DNC), including AfroSpear member Adrianne George. I hope to interview Adrianne from the floor of the DNC.

This is her blog:

And last but not least, AfroSpear member Queen Esther recently won the Jazzmobile 2008 "Best of the Best" Jazz Vocalist Competition. This is her blog:

Congratulations, one and all!
