CINCINNATI (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and a top executive of the world's largest retailer are in the speaker lineup for the upcoming National Urban League Conference in southwest Ohio.

The civil rights organization expects some 8,000 participants at the meeting in downtown Cincinnati. The theme of the July 23-26 conference is "One Nation Underemployed."

The group says Biden will give the plenary speech. Other speakers will include Paul, R-Kentucky; Kentucky Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear; civil rights activist and TV commentator Al Sharpton; and Bill Simon, president and CEO of the U.S. stores division of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

Panel discussions will include progress and unfinished business 50 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and celebrations of African-American culture and music.
