But amazingly didn't include either of the most powerful black leaders in America. Louis Farrakhan is there (Incredible speaker by the way. I disagree with 60% of what he has to say, but his delivery is TOP notch. I thoroughly enjoy listening to the man), but neither Condi Rice nor Colin Powell are invited. The two most successful black public officials apparently don't have anything useful to offer on the discussion of the State of the Black Union in 2005. The man who, if he had accepted the nomination, had an incredible chance to be America's first black President, apparently had nothing intelligent to offer the discussion. Amazing.
