TV One and National Urban League (NUL)’s town hall panel discussion, THE STATE OF BLACK AMERICA, premieres this Sunday, July 29 at 7 PM CT/8 PM ET on TV One.
The two-hour special, which was taped at The Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. back in May, is a panel discussion about present and future conditions facing black America and is based on findings from NUL’s annual report “The State of Black America.“
