7News got a preview of a special virtual town hall set to air Saturday night, called Race in America: Teens Speak.

It was organized by local students who came up with the idea several months ago while working as part of the Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program.

The town hall gives the students the opportunity to produce, direct, write, edit, and host their own discussion on Race in America.

It will be broadcast at 7 p.m. Saturday, December 11 on the District Knowledge Network DKN (Comcast: Channel 99, RCN Channel 18, & Verizon Channel 12).

Guests will include:

  • DC Police Chief Robert J. Contee III,
  • Deputy Mayor for Education Paul Kinde,
  • former DC First Lady Cora Masters Barry,
  • Washington Informer Correspondent James Wright,
  • Howard University Student President Kylie Burke,
  • Department of Employment Services Thennie Freeman,
  • United Planning Organization DeAngelo Rori,
  • Historian C.R. Gibbs, and
  • Sugar Bear of EU.
