The State of Black America 2009 report is a message directly to President Obama. National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial’s opening letter reminds us that all is not well with the Black community. He points out that even though we have a Black President in office, fewer than 50 percent of Blacks nationwide graduate from high school and yet we’re overcrowding prisons. His message to the President is we must continue to work towards achieving equality and civil rights. The fight is far from over.
