TV One and the National Urban League (NUL) will air a special event, “National Urban League Presents: State of Black American Town Hall,” a two-hour program that dissects the National Urban League’s semi-annual report with commentary by an all-star panel of African-American thought leaders.
Health care, education opportunity, the family dynamic, job creation, voting rights, and criminal justice reform are just some of the topics covered during the TV One Town Hall Special, which includes valuable insight and perspective from community thought leaders Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Georgetown University professor and author; Angela Rye, political commentator and analyst; Touré, culture critic and journalist; Symone Sanders, former national press secretary for Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT); Jeff Johnson, journalist; Angela Sailor, former director of the RNC’s Coalitions Department; and Paris Dennard, GOP commentator.
“Thanks to TV One and our other partners, we’re thrilled to be able to bring the conversation to a much wider audience and be the catalyst for a national conversation on issues of racial and economic justice,” says National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial.
In addition to breaking down several key findings from the report, the panel takes questions from the audience that delve deeper into creating small businesses, life after prison, building a family legacy, and remaining ‘present’ amidst the drama of today’s social and cultural ills.

Moderated by News One Now Host and Managing Editor Roland Martin, the televised town hall premieres on TV One on Wednesday, May 31 at 8 p.m. ET.
