Black women's groups step up efforts to energize African American voters in the South

WASHINGTON — On the heels of Democratic political victories in the South, black women’s groups are ramping up efforts to get more blacks to the polls in the region and leverage the power of one of the party's most loyal voting blocs.

Leaders of a coalition of national, state and local black women's groups will meet in Alabama in September for a strategy session. They plan to launch more nonpartisan get-out-the-vote campaigns in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi.
