The National Conference of Black Mayors (NCBM) recently concluded its Annual Convention, wrapping up five days of dialogue and planning around policy and social issues of relevance to communities of color.  During the Convention, four democratic presidential candidates-Senator Hillary Clinton, former Senator John Edwards, Senator Barack Obama and Governor Bill Richardson-addressed the audience of black mayors; NCBM executives announced critical partnerships with government and non-profit organizations; and political leaders from all over the nation forged alliances.
