The 2022 National Black Political Convention will host delegations from across the country and diaspora including leaders from countries in Africa and the Caribbean.

 

The first National Black Political Convention (also known as the Gary Convention) was held March 10 to March 12, 1972, in Gary, Indiana. Approximately 10,000 African-Americans gathered to discuss, debate, and advocate for Black people in the United States. This October 28th - October 30th, hosted in Newark at Essex County College, the National Black Political Convention returns, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Gary Convention.
