Howard University to Host MSNBC Special on Race

Tune in at 9 p.m. to MSNBC for a live three-hour special on race and racial reconciliation in America broadcast from my alma mater, Howard University. You can also watch online by visiting MSNBC.

The special will feature the premiere of “Meeting David Wilson,” a young African-American man’s journey of self-discovery from his upbringing in Newark to his ancestral roots in North Carolina dating back to slavery. Following the documentary, there will be a live on-air town hall discussion hosted by NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams with contributor Tiki Barber.

Featured on the panel will be Howard University faculty member Greg E. Carr, Ph.D., associate professor of Afro-American Studies, whose research and work in developing curriculum and instructional strategies to improve African-American male educational performance has informed several major educational reform Initiatives.

Other panelists scheduled to appear will include, Tom Joyner, Michael Eric Dyson, Malaak Compton-Rock, Kriss Turner, Kevin Powell, Mike Barnicle, Tim Wise, and Rev. Buster Soaries.
