By Marc H. Morial, National Urban League – Each year, the release of the National Urban League’s annual State of Black America® report triggers a national conversation on racial and economic justice. This year, for the first time, we’re putting that conversation on television.
In partnership with TV One, “National Urban League Presents: State of Black America” will air at 8 pm Eastern, 7 pm Central, on Wednesday, May 31.
Urban League affiliates, Guild chapters and our Young Professionals will be hosting watch parties in cities all across the country, while participating in the conversation on social media with the hashtag #StateOfBlackAmerica.
The two-hour event, which was taped during the National Urban League’s State of Black America Summit in Washington, D.C., earlier this month, features stimulating panel discussions and illuminating reports from our affiliates on education, mentorship, homeownership, employment and entrepreneurship.
