Sen. Cory Booker joined Shelby and Ike to discuss his proposed policies as a Democratic candidate* for 

President, policies, he argues, that will bring the country back together. He believes that his appeal to African-Amercian voters makes his candidacy viable and that Hilary Clinton's 2016 loss was partly due to her failure to appeal to the lived experiences of the diverse nature of the Democratic Party. And he describes how his engagement in the African-American community drives his policy. 

*As of January 13, 2020, Senator Cory Booker has suspended his campaign.

Tonight the Sanford Center will hold an event at the Orpheum Theatre featuring Mitch and Emily Martin, Play It Forward, Kevin Keane, and more.

Over time, its role in the community has expanded: setting up affordable, educational daycare; going into schools to help students and diminish gang presence; feeding families. Much of this growth happened under the directorship of George Boykin.
