After SNCC worked to elect black elected officials: John Conyers to Congress, Coleman Young as Mayor of Detroit, Ron Dellums to Congress.

In 1968 organized Detroit group of local activists to organize the 1969 National Black Economic Development Conference where James Forman presented his historic speech, "The Black Manifesto."

Also worked as International Organizer for AFSCME organizing hospital workers, and housekeepers, in Northern California and UC Berkeley.

It has been my hope for a long time that we can again come together and complete our unfinished work.
