President Obama Visits Cuba

President Barack Obama became the first president in nearly ninety years to step foot on Cuban soil, arriving in the region on Sunday afternoon. The first family was greeted by several dignitaries, which did not include Cuba’s Presidant, Raul Castro. President Obama is set to engage in dialogue with President Castro and other Cuban officials to begin mending severed ties between Cuba and the U.S.

Roland Martin spoke with NBC reporter Jay Gray live from Havana, Cuba about Mr. Obama’s arrival in Cuba. In a special simulcast with the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Martin spoke with Devyn Spence Benson, author of the book, Anti-Racism in Cuba: The Unfinished Revolution and businessman Troy Nash about the President’s trip to Cuba and if people of color will be able to benefit from improving U.S.-Cuban relations.

When America thinks about some of its greatest newspapers, publications like the New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal come to mind. But, The Chicago Defender should also be on that list. It was certainly one of the most influential papers of the 20th century.

Roland Martin, Host of NewsOne Now and former Executive Editor/General Manager of the Chicago Defender, spoke with Ethan Michaeli, author of The Defender: How the Legendary Black Newspaper Changed America.

Michaeli told Martin, “The Defender reshaped the political landscape of the country, it was responsible for starting the Great Migration, John Sengstacke negotiated with Harry Truman to integrate the U.S. Armed forces, he then helped elect Harry Truman, he helped elect John F. Kennedy, and it (the Chicago Defender) gave a start to Barack Obama.”
