Rudy Crew, the President of Medgar Evers College plans to have Hillary Clinton deliver the Commencement Speech at the school's June 8th 2017 graduation ceremony at Brooklyn's Barclays Center and to give her an Honorary Doctorate. Given her record towards the Black community at home and abroad, is such an honor warranted? Does Hillary's record reflect the legacy of Medgar Evers? Why is Rudy Crew, once a supporter of Rudy Giuliani, helping to ressuscitate Hillary Clinton's career? Should the Haitian community's travails with Donald Trump give Hillary a pass for her record in Haiti on the minimum wage and mostly female garment workers, elections interference at home and abroad and on "pay to play" schemes involving contracts for Earthquake recovery? 

Join Alice Backer of kiskeacity.com, Dahoud André,  host of Emisyon Eritye Papa Desalin and Djery Jean, a student at Medgar Evers College to discuss.
