Special Guest Ahmad Greene-Hayes Joins Agunda Okeyo and Farah Tanis for critical conversation, a State of Emergency, Black Men Weigh In: How Should Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton Be Talking About Black Women in This Election. While our democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders discusses civil rights and Hillary Clinton discusses women's rights within the context of critical issues like a woman's right to choose and equal pay, they both miss the mark on Black women. A formidable movement against campus sexual assault and rape in Black communities exists and it is led by Black women. Black women are also making the connections between the cyclical relationship between poverty, criminal justice and the heightened vulnerability of all women, and particularly women color to gender-violence. These are both civil rights and women's rights issues. Issues critical to Black/African American women should rise today in the Democratic presidential debates, especially in light of the historic Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls launched this month and the The Black Women’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission convening from April 28 to May 1, 2016.
