New Leaders

Dayvon Love

State of the Re:Union shines the spotlight on the next generation of grassroots leaders in the African-American community. Having traveled the country for five years, State of the Re:Union has seen the emergence of African-American leaders pushing to make change — people we may never hear about because they aren't on talk shows or leading national causes.

Most of these men and women are on the front lines of their communities, rolling up their sleeves and diving in to what can be very unglamorous work. Host Al Letson profiles individuals advancing the African-American community such as Dayvon Love, Leroy Jones, Jahlove Serrano, and Rev. Maria Scates.
