Answering the What Now - Post-Election Conversation

Hosted by Paula and special guest Andre, we will discuss the post-election results, perspectives and ponder a few questions:

Are we living in a "post-racial" society?

Did the "Black" vote matter? Do OUR issues matter?

But, the most important question "What now?" remains to be answered.
