Welcome to the Mervyn M. Dymally
African American Political and
Economic Institute

We hope you will find the information here relevant and useful to you. Our mission is to influence public policy debates through an on-going academic and community research dealing with African American economic and political development issues in California; to document and analyze the professional lives and achievements of African American public-elected official, business leaders, and policy makers as well as the impact of their efforts on the political, social, and economic development of the Black community and other disadvantaged communities; and to design and implement training programs for current and future Black leaders and business people.
