The Institute of the Black World 21st Century (IBW) will convene a National Town Hall Meeting to evaluate the impact on Black America of the Cabinet appointments, the Supreme Court appointment, Executive Orders and Legislative/Policy initiatives advanced by President Trump in the first 100 days of his administration. The event is scheduled for Friday, April 28, 7 – 9:30 p.m.in the Frederick Douglass Hall of the historic Metropolitan AME Church, 1518 M Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. Dr. Ron Daniels, President of IBW said, “we have assembled an outstanding panel of scholars, policy analysts and political commentators to evaluate the impact of President Trump’s first 100 days on the interests of Black people.” The Panel Includes:
Mark Thompson, Host of Make It Plain, SIRIUSXM Progress 127 and Verna Avery Brown, Host of What’s at Stake, WPFW, Pacifica, Washington, D.C., will serve as Moderators/Facilitators for the Panel Discussion – which will be broadcast live. Rev. William H. Lamar IV, Senior Pastor, Metropolitan AME Church and the Bethel Literary and Historical Society are hosts for the Town Hall Meeting.
Addressing the significance of the event, Dr. Ron Daniels commented: “It’s no secret that there is tremendous concern about the potential damage that Trump’s agenda might inflict on Black America and the broader Black World. This will be an opportunity to assess whether those concerns are justified.”
There will be media availability with the leadership of IBW and the Panelists prior to the start of the Town Hall Meeting.
