The White House wants to host a “listening session” with Black leaders. Some organizations which have not yet been asked have already said no, including the Derrick Johnson, President & CEO of the NAACP, Rev. Dr. William Barber of The Poor People’s Campaign, Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League.
