Discussing The Black Agenda and Obama's presidency
On Saturday, March 20, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan participated in Tavis Smiley's symposium titled, "We Count: The Black Agenda is the American Agenda," at the Jones Convocation Center on the campus of Chicago State University.
Braving snow and cold temperatures on what was supposed to be the first day of spring, thousands came out to hear some of Black America's best minds discuss the Presidency of Barack Obama and the need for the Black community to take responsibility for solving the problems that plague our communities. The event was originally scheduled to appear live on C-SPAN however, because of the critical vote and debate on health care, it was pre-empted.
According to Mr. Smiley, C-SPAN has informed him that the symposium is scheduled to air during primetime, on Monday March 29th at 8:30 p.m. EDT/ 7:30 p.m. CDT. The webcast replay is currently available @ FinalCall.com/BlackAgenda.
Additionally, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will appear on the Cliff Kelly Show on WVON 1690AM in Chicago on Wednesday March 24 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. CDT. WVON streams live on the web at http://www.wvon.com.
