National Agenda 2015: Race in America<p>Veteran CBS News White House correspondent Bill Plante believes that despite changing approaches to campaign coverage and declining access to those at the highest levels of government, the responsibility for change in the political and public policy arenas continues to depend on careful decisions by an informed and concerned electorate. Plante covered the civil rights movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. Plante returned to Selma in March 2015 to cover the 50th anniversary celebration  of the historic march for voting rights. <br></p> Agenda 2015: Race in America featuring Bill PlanteCBS News Correspondent Race in America
National Agenda 2015: Race in America<p>​Social media has provided a new space for honest conversations about race, a platform through which to organize and a means by which to bear witness to the pain of the black community resulting from killings at the hands of the authorities, two Black Lives Matter activists told a large University of Delaware National Agenda speaker series audience on Wednesday night, Sept. 30, 2015, in Mitchell Hall. Johnetta Elzie got her start as an activist on August 9, 2014, when she made her way to Ferguson, Missouri, in the wake of Michael Brown's death. She, with DeRay Mckesson, began to provide tools and communication among activists. Both were recognized among <em>Fortune Magazine’s</em> world’s 50 greatest leaders in 2015 and both received the 2015 Howard Zinn Freedom to Write Award for their work.</p> Agenda 2015: Race in America featuring Johnetta Elzie and DeRay MckessonBlack Lives Matter activists Race in America
