Tallahassee, Florida -- March 25, 2011 --

The students are part of an Emerging Leaders Forum.

They asked questions about the caucus, from what they do in the legislative process, to how often they meet.

During the day, they got to meet with local leaders and state representatives

"We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to get involved, regardless of color, regardless of race, regardless of university and regardless of age. It's never too early to get involved with the process," said Djawa Hall, Coordinator of the Emerging Leaders Forum.

More than 60 students participated in the Emerging Leaders Forum.

Training topics included Grassroots Organizing, Electoral Politics, and Hip Hop in regards to Politics.

    Oh Wonderful . Lets sit and make speeches centered on the demonization of Whites. Liberal Criminal loving and Gun Hating Socialist Policies. How Whites owe US and EVERY FOREIGNER a living and car. Throw in a full College tuition and or JOB. Glad to see the future Malcom x and Owe bummer factory still up and runnin. :)

    Any smart black person would be insulted by this. The black caucus can only teach one how to be centered on being black as opposed to being American.

    Here's an idea, lets learn about TEAM, and true DEMOCRACY. Instead of self importance and special interest that do not provide for the many, only the few. Selfish Caucus is more like it.
