The Historic Capitol Hill Debate
Former Congressman J.C. Watts, Jr. (R-OK) was joined by Former Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) on Capitol Hill for a Black History Month Forum. The event hosted by Insight America was a salute to the Black Republican Congressional Staff Association and the Congressional Black Associates for their willingness to offer common ground solutions for communities of color.
Watts and Lincoln gave closing statements that commended the congressional staffers for their participation. Both Watts and Lincoln made observations about the need to find issues where both sides of the aisle can agree. They both encouraged the staffers to then work on those points of agreement to move policy forward for the American public, more specifically communities of color.
Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele was joined by Hilary Shelton, NAACP Senior Vice President of Advocacy to moderate this historic event. The 20th Century Booker T. Washington vs. W.E.B. DuBois discussion was advanced by six congressional staffers who debated each other with strong diverse political ideologies. Staffers were given the opportunity to debate, to find common ground solutions and discuss 21st century policies for the issues of Socio-Economic Mobility and Inequality before an audience of congressional staffers, business and community leaders.
