“BlackLiberalBoomer” is actually two people, husband-and-wife writing, editing, and marketing team Keith A. Owens and Pamela Hilliard Owens. We blog regularly here and also as contributing writers to the #1 Progressive/Liberal blog, PoliticusUSA.
I am proud to be the national representative (using my nom de plume, “BlackLiberalBoomer”) for PoliticusUSA at this year’s Netroots Nation Convention (NN14), being held in Detroit, Michigan from July 17 – 20. Netroots Nation is the largest gathering of progressive political activists in the country, and I am so excited that the convention is being held in my hometown this year.
Besides the scores of interesting and relevant sessions that will cover a very diverse mix of progressive and liberal issues and causes, NN14 will feature very special keynote speakers:
- Vice-President Joe Biden
- Senator Elizabeth Warren
- Rev. Barber from North Carolina (Moral Mondays)
- Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Michigan 2014 Gubernatorial Candidate Mark Schauer
I will be live-blogging from many of the sessions I will attend, and I will try very hard to take some “selfies” with famous and not-so-famous people!
I will also be writing a series of articles for PoliticusUSA on local, national, and international areas of interest; those articles will be published on their website in the coming days.
Did I tell you that I am very excited about this convention and this opportunity?
