ABC will be airing a special called “The President and the People,” which will feature President Obama in a town hall discussion. Covering race, gun violence, police conduct and brutality, the town hall will also include family members and police officers from Baton Rouge, Dallas and Minneapolis.
“It’s a week that laid bare some of our country’s toughest, most uncomfortable challenges,” Obama wrote in a recent Facebook post. “But I reject the idea that these issues are somehow too big for us—that America is too divided to find common ground. As I’ve said, I know that we can honor the incredible courage and service of our police officers—and also recognize the racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system. There’s no contradiction there.”
The discussion will be moderated by ABC’s David Muir and ESPN’s Jemele Hill.
