ALL-AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL DEMOCRATIC FORUM’ LIVE BROADCAST
WASHINGTON D.C. – Governor Deval Patrick will introduce the eight Democratic candidates vying for the 2008 Presidential seat at the "All-American Presidential Forum," broadcast live from Howard University on Thursday, June 28th.
The forum, to be aired on PBS, will be moderated by Tavis Smiley, and will mark the first time that a panel exclusively comprised of journalists of color will be represented in primetime. Panelists will include Tavis Smiley, Michel Martin of National Public Radio, nationally syndicated columnist Ruben Navarrette Jr. and USA Today and Gannett News Service columnist DeWayne Wickham.
Last fall, voters across the country spoke loud and clear about their desire for change. In Massachusetts, voters answered Patrick’s own call to action. His historic grassroots campaign and positive message are an important part of the nation’s new agenda of change.
