President Obama gives Black voters a call to action.
President Obama is taking a moment to address concerns from Black voters in his first, exclusive interview on BET’s special, “The President Answers Black America.”
He will address the current unemployment crisis and economy specifically to an American audience with Emmy-Award winning journalist and former KTLA anchor Emmett Miller. The special premieres Monday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
In this weekend’s speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, President Obama galvanized Black voters to support his efforts to improve the economy. “Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes,” he said, his voice rising with applause. “Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’. We are going to press on. We have work to do.”
