On Monday, several Democratic leaders and multiple celebrities are scheduled to offer their shared vision for the future of America in Philadelphia for the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
After the Republicans gave their vision of a better America—and to “Make America Great Again”—at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week, the Democrats will have their chance to bring their message to the table.
The mainstream media called Donald Trump’s acceptance speech on Thursday at the Republican National Convention “dark” and divisive and too long. But in the wake of the “DNCleak” emails surrounding Bernie Sanders, Democrats need to prove why their message is the right message for the country, when a significant amount of voters find presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as dishonest and untrustworthy.
To help flip the script are Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, who is a graduate of Howard University in the nation’s capital, and state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, a Spelman College alum, who will help make that case as both are scheduled to speak at the upcoming Democratic National Convention which begins Monday.
