Get Informed & Get Involved: #BarackTalk Stream of Pres. Obama’s State of the Union Address
Hip-hop may be stereotypically shallow and materialistic, but the truth is hip-hop has always been politically involved and politically powerful. In that spirit, League Of Young Voters Education Fund, AllHipHop.com and Rock The Vote will host their second annual #BarackTalk, a State of the Union round table discussion and watch party for viewers to watch and engage in conversation with panelists.
#BarackTalk will kick off with a series of panel discussions about the biggest issues facing Millennials before the 2012 presidential election. The party begins when President Barack Obama starts his fourth State of the Union address, and will conclude with analysis and discussion by some of the best and brightest minds in entertainment and politics, including hip-hop luminary Davey D, The DJBooth regulars Phil Ade and Dee-1 and more.
It all starts tonight, Tuesday January 24, at 7:30 EST. Watch the stream below, stay informed, stay active and remember, your voice does matter.
During the #BarackTalk discussions, participants can directly engage with panelists to ask questions via Ustream at www.BarackTalk.com and LYVEF’s Twitter handle, @TheLeague99. Viewers asking questions on Twitter are encouraged to use the hashtag #BarackTalk.
