Black People helped Biden to the Presidency. Now what?

32 minutes

The 2020 presidential election between incumbent President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden was the most hotly contested election in a generation. The stakes were high. Very high. And it was inevitably close. Margins were tight. So how did Joe Biden secure his victory? The African American vote! African Americans voted in unprecedented numbers in many urban cities, which helped Biden win the swing states and presidency. But what's the next step? What will Biden do to support the community that supported him? Will Biden's policies on racial justice, climate change, health care, federal minimum wage, affordable housing, and other issues support African Americans? Or will they fall short of the promised progressive platforms needed to make real change in the Black community and the country as a whole? Join the Espresso Talk Today Team as they discuss these issues and look to the future of the Biden presidency. They also question President Trump's surprising performance in the election. This dynamic and uncommon conversation could have you standing with pride, jumping for joy, and contemplating the future. Don't miss it!
