Response to Jamaal510 (Reply #26)

60. I loved that part, too, Jamaal. Actually showing President Obama's record on what he has

gotten accomplished for African Americans.

There's My Brother's Keeper, too..

The ‘Rise’ of Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative

"For President Obama, My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) is personal. He cares about a lot of issues. But when it comes to addressing the plight of young men and boys of color in this country, when he articulates the harrowing statistics that show their stunted growth and blunted promise, Obama displays the pain of someone with intimate knowledge of the problem. Still, there is a hopefulness and determination behind what he is doing because the president knows he is uniquely positioned to command the attention needed to bolster solutions in a very just cause.

Obama’s championing of MBK, a public-private endeavor he established in 2014, got the attention of documentary filmmaker Dawn Porter. “Rise: The Promise of My Brother’s Keeper,” which will air at 7 p.m. on the Discovery Channel and simulcast OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Father’s Day, looks at the lives of young men and boys of color in four MBK-principled programs around the country. It will premiere at the Newseum as part of the documentary film festival of the American Film Institute on June 18. But what will give the one-hour documentary added power is the participation of the president himself. Obama granted Porter an interview during his visit to Camden, N.J., on Monday."
