President Obama won the 2008 and 2012 presidential election thanks in large part to his campaign’s outreach efforts to the minority community. The African-American vote, in particular, reached a historic milestone in turnout and has become a significant focus in this year’s election. Are this year’s candidates successfully reaching that population of the electorate? 

"The reason Hillary Clinton has won these primaries is because of black voters," Morehouse professor and author, Marc Lamont Hill.

We spoke with Morehouse College professor of African-American Studies and author Marc Lamont Hill about the power of the minority vote in this year’s election.

He will speak with Georgetown professor and author Michael Eric Dyson tonight at 7PM at Morehouse College's Ray Charles Performing Arts Center as part of the "Crown Forum After Dark" series.
