African American Leadership Summit
Well today I attended the African American Leadership Summit! What a great event. The summit was sponsored by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinston (TX) and Senator Rick Santorum (PA) and co-chaired by Honorable Rod Paige - Secretary of Education.

What a great day and event! I feel empowered and excited to do good work in the African American community. The event had panel participants and discussed the following sub topics:

Health Care
Economic Development

Several distinguished and honorable guests spoke to the sell out crowd today, including Vice President Dick Cheney! What a day and what an event.

Some of the speakers included:

US Senator Lamar Alexander, Tennessee
Michael Steele, Lt. Governor, State of Maryland
Gerald Reynolds, Deputy Associate Attorney General, US Department of Justice
Renee Amoore - President, The Amoore Group (One of my personal idols)
Randall Maxey, M.D. President, National Medical Association
Franklin Raines, Chairman and CEO Fannie Mae
Tony Chase, Chairman and CEO - ChaseCom, LP., and Chase Radio Partners
Richard Knight, Jr., Founder and Chariman, KnightCo Oil Company

What an amazing day. I met African American leaders from all over the country and felt honored to be apart of such an esteemed group of African Americans.
