As Clinton makes monumental strides to potentially become the first-ever elected woman President of the United States, African-American women in politics also stand to make history. California Attorney General Kamala Harris is a strong prospect to become the 2nd black woman elected to the U.S. Senate and State Labor Secretary Lisa Blunt Rochester  may become the first African-American and first woman elected to Congress for the state of Delaware. Martin and panelists will discuss these races and other news of note for African Americans during the live telecast, which promises to be engaging as well as informative.

 

The Election Night Viewing Party will also be live-streamed at Facebook.com/TVOnetv.  For more information about News One Now and Roland S. Martin, visit www.tvone.tv/election and www.newsone.com.
