One of the criticisms of President Obama is that as the first African American president he"has not done enough for the Black community".  It's a complaint made about many African American politicians, regardless of office, and particularly when it comes to improving the economic issues facing the Black community, such as unemployment, low property ownership, and slow entrepreneurial growth.  On this special edition of Another View, we will explore the intersection of economics and politics, with Dr. Eric Claville, Assistant Professor and Director of the Hampton University Pre-Law Institute, and the co-host of the" Claville Report:  Policy, Law and Politics", along with guest Allison Jones, Assistant VP for Virginia Governmental Relations with McGuire Woods.  Join us for the next Another View, Friday, April 29 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
