The Forum Podcast - Don Lemon
News junkies around the country tune in each night to catch Don spar with political pundits and policymakers on CNN Tonight, which he anchors weekdays during prime-time.
Friday night at the IOP, we turned the tables on Don by asking him to trade the anchor desk for the interview chair. What followed was a frank and wide-ranging conversation, co-moderated by Aisha Moodie-Mills, IOP Spring Resident Fellow ‘19, and Sam Kessler ‘19, a Harvard student and former Harvard Political Review president. Lemon also took several questions from the JFK JR. Forum audience in attendance.
We titled the conversation: "Race, Media, and Politics." It was a timely and relevant conversation topic and a critical dialogue to be engaged in, as we conclude Black History Month and enter a Presidential election cycle.
