The “Black Americans for a Better Future” is a 527 Political Action Committee (PAC) founded by longtime Republican political operative, syndicated newspaper columnist and author Raynard Jackson. This PAC is the first and only 527 dedicated to attracting African-Americans to the Republican Party. It’s immediate focus however, is primarily on the African-American entrepreneur.
The goal of this PAC will be to counter those liberal organizations that receive an inordinate amount of media attention and to present a counter narrative to messages given by organizations such as; The People for the American Way, National Council of La Raza, and the Center for American Progress.
This event is paid for by Black Americans for a Better Future and not authorized by any candidate’s committee.
