President Barack Obama has a bold plan for uplifting black America and the White House wants African Americans to know it.
Sitting inside the White House this week, I listened to Valarie Jarrett, the president’s senior adviser, speak passionately about Obama’s ambitious goal to rehabilitate 20 poor communities across the country where black people have struggled for years.
The plan to renovate some of the nation’s most devastated black neighborhoods is part of a broad strategy to help improve the quality of life for many black Americans and includes Obama focusing on a myriad of challenges facing young black men as he begins his second term in the White House.
Obama will travel to the South Side of Chicago on Friday to speak with 16 black male students who are growing up poor, troubled, and some without fathers in their lives.
