The White House wants to host a “listening session” with Black leaders. Some organizations which have not yet been asked have already said no, including the Derrick Johnson, President & CEO of the NAACP, Rev. Dr. William Barber of The Poor People’s Campaign, Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League.

April Ryan speaks with Rev. Al Sharpton, who will travel to Minneapolis to deliver the eulogy for George Floyd’s going home service.
