Melissa Harris Perry MHP The Syllabus

‘MHP’ Syllabus: 1.10.16

This Sunday, we’ll reflect on a season of predictions. With many Americans playing for a chance to win the historic Powerball dollar jackpot, the NFL playoffs in full swing, and award season kicking off with the Golden Globes, we’ll have the latest on predictions for the 2016 presidential race. We’ll take a look at our latest polls from the key states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

Is there a Brown and Black Agenda and how do we describe it? We’ll discuss Monday’s Brown and Black Forum in Iowa as well as recent disparaging comments made at a town hall by Governor Paul LePage of Maine.  

Plus a flashback to President Obama’s previous State of the Union speeches to highlight his finest moments and how he’s evolved over the years. How will his final State of the Union speech impact the Democratic candidates running for his office?

Also a discussion on the poverty forum held in South Carolina. Joining us to talk about the outcome of the Kemp Forum on Expanding Opportunity with some personal insight will be Tiana Gaines-Turner from the Witness to Hunger program.
