Mar 30, 2011

NEW YORK-March 29, 2011-On Sunday, April 10, MSNBC anchor Ed Schultz will host a panel discussion with the National Action Network’s Rev. Al Sharpton titled, “A Stronger America: The Black Agenda” from noon-2 p.m. ET. The panel comes at the end of the National Action Network’s annual summit, and will feature prominent African American leaders from across the U.S. who are committed to furthering critical issues impacting their community. Schultz and the panel will discuss pertinent topics affecting African Americans such as politics, modern civil rights, healthcare, education and how we can help build a strong African American community. MSNBC will ask the tough questions: What is the Black Agenda? Do President Obama and other African American officials owe the African American community anything? What can the African American community do to help itself? How does the Black agenda help to further the overall American agenda?

Leading up to the panel discussion on the 10, MSNBC will air segments across their dayside news coverage, focusing on issues that affect the African American community and interviewing some of the most distinguished members of the African American community.
