Following civil rights reforms of the 1960s, African Americans continued to search for solutions to issues in the community. In March 1972, delegates from each state and all African Americans holding elected office met in Gary, Indiana for the National Black Caucus Convention. Regardless of their political affiliation, delegates established a national agenda including national community health centers and health insurance, creation of a new urban-based Homestead Act, and a minimum wage guarantee. This pennant is just one example of memorabilia collected by attendees at the convention.
