On Saturday, April 17th, MSNBC will carry portions of the National Action Network's panel discussion titled "Measuring the Movement: Black Leadership's 12-Month Action Plan." The panel will feature prominent Black leaders from across the US who will pledge to further critical issues impacting Black Americans over a 12-month period. The discussion, led by Rev. Al Sharpton, the National Urban League's Marc Morial, BET personality Jeff Johnson, NAACP President Ben Jealous and radio host Tom Joyner, among others, is scheduled to air from 11am-1pm ET.
On Sunday, April 18th, MSNBC will present a live panel discussion on the topics from the convention from noon-2pm ET. MSNBC anchors Tamron Hall and Ed Schultz will host the forum, diving in-depth into topics from politics, business, civil rights, education, and more as they pertain to Black Americans. MSNBC will ask the tough questions: What is the Black Agenda, and do we need one? Do President Obama and other Black officials owe the Black community anything? What can the Black community do to help itself? How does the Black agenda help to further the overall American agenda?
