WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is creating a new office to bolster education of African-American students.

The White House says the office will coordinate the work of communities and federal agencies to ensure that African-American youngsters are better prepared for high school, college and career.

Obama is announcing his election-year initiative Wednesday night in a speech to the civil rights group the National Urban League as he seeks to rally black voters. Aides say his executive order, to be signed Thursday, will set a goal of producing "a more effective continuum" of programs for African-American students.

  1. Don’t Believe The Hype!

    What is it that will make a race of people come together for the benefit of themselves.
    A.The unemployment rate White 7% Black 14%
    B.The dropout rate and the inner city school situation.
    C.The Republican Party and state vote cheating.
    D.The Tea Party
    E.A President that won’t come talk to the N.A.A.C.P for fear of what white people will think
    F.H.I.V., Heart disease, High Blood Pressure, Black lead
    G.Incarceration, Black lead
    H.Congress & The House and the majority vote
    I. The supreme Court and Citizens United
    Frederick Douglass:”A race of people can’t be truly free when their freedom and economic stability is based on the thoughts, actions,and feelings of another race”
    Time to lose the fear BLACK NATIONAL TREASURY I have five dollars a week out of my check for that.Our we should all be ashamed to leave generations of black kids still having to ask the white man for work.
    As long as I have a job its all good. Assimilation into a culture that is only concerned with its own survival. WAKE UP.
