Moderated by Roland S. Martin, host and managing editor of TV ONE’s “News One Now,” and Jake Tapper of CNN, the nationally-televised primetime special took place at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, and aired live on CNN and TV ONE. Emphasizing issues facing Black America, the two-hour event was simulcast on Urban Adult Contemporary Radio One stations in each of its 15 urban markets and live-streamed online and across mobile devices via CNNgo.
“Every election matters, and this year’s Presidential campaign is no different,” stated Martin. “African Americans are some of the most astute voters. The issues we care about the most deserve to be addressed by anyone seeking to be President of the United States. I look forward to vigorous and honest discussion with former Secretary Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders.”
