Each year the National Urban League releases it’s ‘State of Black America’ report.  The  year’s highly anticipated edition commemorates the milestones that have occurred in black history in the 50 years since the height of the civil rights movement.

This 37th edition features essays by an esteemed group of thought-leaders from leading corporations, not-for-profit organizations, academia and news media, and members of the President’s cabinet and federal lawmakers.

The National Urban League has gone a step further with this year’s report. Sponsored by AT&T and Comcast, NUL has created an eight-part web series that brings the State of Black America report to life.

The eight-episode series is hosted by Politic365 Executive Editor and award-winning journalist, Jeff Johnson, who asks “What is the state of Black America?”  The series features lively discussion with the nation’s top leaders, political pundits, corporate executives and SOBA authors such as Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, Laura Murphy, Director of  Washington Legislative Office, ACLU,  and Melanie Campbell, CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation.

Each episode tackles a different aspect of where Black America finds itself in 2013.  Topics range from unemployment to “the State of Black Men –  50 Years Later” to the role of media.

Guests not only offer insights into why Black America is where it is today, but more importantly solutions to closing the equality index.
