The Rainbow Push Coalition’s 41st annual conference takes place this week at the Hilton Chicago.

The topic of conversation was a timely one: Does Market Share Translate into Representation? And the conversation was rooted in data, that is, hard numbers that told the story of the African American consumers’ habits, preferences and brand loyalty.
