2020 Candidates Take the Stage at Essence Fest

2020 Candidates Take the Stage at Essence Fest SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/xsXMP6qQv-w : Half a million people attended the Essence Festival earlier this month to celebrate black culture. And these days, where black women go, so do 2020 candidates. In 2016, 94% of black women voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton.

The festival comes on the heels of a Democratic debate that put questions of race front and center. Sen. Kamala Harris stole the show that night, partly by invoking her experience as a young black girl. The moment sparked birther-style attacks and questions about whether Harris, whose parents are Jamaican and Indian, has lived the African-American experience.
