RAP SESSIONS WITH BAKARI KITWANA

Bakari Kitwana speaks with political strategist, writer and organizer Alexis McGill Johnson about key mid-term election races that she’s watching today. They also discuss what is at stake for the Black community overall in today’s mid-term elections. McGill Johnson tells newsone.com why Senate and House races, key races in California and Nevada, and the youth vote are all crucial. She says that a progressive agenda is important for all communities, particularly the Black community.

“Right now we are looking at a potential reversal of healthcare reform and an inability to address the foreclosure crisis,” says McGill Johnson.  “And those two things should be enough, more than anything else, to motivate people to go to the polls today.”
