1.11.2022 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: Biden-Harris & Voting Rights, Black Girl Code CEO out, Black Virtual Mall, LA 1st Black Female Sheriff
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris take a trip to the epicenter of the American civil rights, Atlanta. Today, they paid their respects to Martin Luther King, Jr. before speaking at the Atlanta University Center Consortium on the urgency to pass voting rights legislation and protect Americans' sacred right to vote. Georgia Congressman David Scott is here to help us break down what the president said.
And a coalition of twenty-five faith leaders from across the nation has been on a hunger strike since the first anniversary of the insurrection to urge Congress to protect democracy by passing voting rights legislation by Martin L. King, Jr. Day. Three of them are here with us tonight.
We now know the name of the white off-duty police officer who gunned down a black man who he claims jumped on his truck. We'll have the latest from North Carolina.
She was suspended from the organization she founded. Tonight, I'm talking to Kimberly Bryant from the Oakland-based tech nonprofit, Black Girls Code about the suspension and the investigation.
Plus, she's making history in Louisiana by being elected the first black female sheriff in the state's history. We will be talking to Orleans Parish Sheriff-Elect Susan Hutson about her plans for the parish.
And in our Marketplace segment. She made going to the mall easier, and you don't even have to leave your home. The mastermind behind the first-ever Black Virtual Mall will explain how it works.
