The National Black Political Convention

Sessions, forums, and candid discussions with a focus on solutions. NBPC is an action-oriented conference. The overarching goal is to determine a path forward, not simply rehash where we are. NBPC brings together scholars, professionals, politicians and community activists to build and create The Black Agenda.

history of the nbpc

On March 10-12, 1972, under the leadership of U.S. Representative Congressman Charles Diggs (MI), and Mayor Richard Hatcher (Gary, IN) and  author/activist Amiri Baraka hosted the first National Black Political Convention. Its theme was “Black Politics at the Crossroads”. This historic event was overwhelmingly received by the residents of Gary and by all the convention participants.


Inaugural event, attended by several of the icons of Black activism that we know today.


44 years later, we revisited Gary to renew our commitment and drafted an updated declaration of the issues facing the Black Community in America.
