This week on “The Tent,” Daniella and Jesse debrief on the unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the shooting of Black Wisconsinite Jacob Blake by the police and discuss the norm-shattering 2020 Republican National Convention. Later, they connect with Juanita Tolliver, political director at Supermajority, to talk about Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) vice presidential nomination, the stakes of the 2020 election for Black voters, and how organizing in these communities has changed since 2016.
