CBC presents Freedmen panel

Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Conference (CBCF) upcoming panel on Freedmen Issues which will be held on Friday September 26th beginning at 1pm at the Washington DC Convention center - Rm 145B . The Freedmen panel is being sponsored by the Honorable Congressman John Conyers and the Honorable Congresswoman Diane Watson.

(hmm, wonder why they aren't calling this the Black Indian conference - apparently there are a great number of groups around the country calling themselves Black Indians - non are enrolled in a recognized tribe but they sure want to be known as Indians - this is a Congressional Black Caucus event, not a Congressional Hearing - wouldn't it be nice if they'd support funding for Indians rather than identity theft)
