Danny D. Glover is a young black politician with a bright future. He earned a Bachelors in Political Science at historically black Tennessee State University in 2011, and was named the National Historically Black Colleges and University’s Outreach Director for Sen. Bernie Sanders, and spearheaded Sanders’ “Feel The Burn HBCU” tour.

In an interview with The New York Times, Bernie Sanders announced that his campaign is dramatically downsizing—the Vermont senator can’t win the Democratic nomination but is still in the race. Glover says, though he was one of the 325 to 350 workers the campaign is laying off, he is “extremely grateful for the opportunity.” He shared his incredible experience Thursday night on Twitter.
