This is the first annual public forum to honor the memory of the late Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones and it will focus on the future of black political leadership. A new generation of black politicians is choosing careers in public service in a different way. How has political leadership changed? How was it nurtured in the past, how is it nurtured presently, and how should it be nurtured going forward? How can we foster and develop political leadership in individuals? And, what are the qualities and experience needed for a successful career in public service?
