The issue of Barack Obama’s approval among African Americans may be up for debate, but one thing is certain: The President will appear on BET (and Centric) to exclusively address our community in A BET News Exclusive: The President Answers Black America.

This Monday, September 26th, the one-on-one interview with former KTLA anchor Emmett Miller will focus on some of the community’s most pressing concerns, namely, the dire unemployment rate.

“We are thrilled to be the platform where the president will exclusively address our community,” said Loretha Jones, President of Original Programming at BET Networks.  “This conversation is particularly important given the impact the economic environment is having on African-Americans.”

Gearing up for 2012, Obama promises to discuss what lies ahead on the road to re-election, and will answer one reader-submitted question on-air relating to “how and when recovery will come to the African-American community.”


The President Answers Black America will air on Monday, Sept. 26, at 7:30. For more info, or to submit your question (Sept 23 – no later than 11am Eastern time), click AskObama.
