Last month Ambassador Andrew Young and I had the opportunity to address the delegates for the national conference of the Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC), in Atlanta, Georgia at their annual Town Hall session.
Needless to say, it was a likely and very significant discussion which addressed the future of the African-American community in the 21st century, and what Ambassador Young and I refer to increasingly as the call for a new silver rights movement in America.

A special kudos to our own Karen A.Clark, the person responsible for getting me there, and as a direct result, Ambassador Young. UFSC’s Otis Watson and their entire team are to be commended for their efforts in pulling together this important national meeting of leaders. Other panelists for the Town Hall included Albert E. Dotson, Jr., chairman of 100 Black Men of America, Inc., Joseph Simmons, Bishop-Economic Development, Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship and the moderator for the session was Virgil Fludd, Georgia State Representative, 66th District.
