This week the Democratic National Convention made its way to Philadelphia, and so did The Root.

In partnership with WURD, The Root hosted Our Power, Our Promise: Shaping a Black Policy Agenda in the Post-Obama Era, at the black-owned restaurant South.

And Wednesday's conversation was led by a keen bunch. Among the group of thought leaders: Rep. Terri A. Sewell (D-Ala.); Jason Johnson, political editor of The Root; and attorney Benjamin Crump. The robust conversation touched on the challenges that black Americans will likely face ahead, and the actions to take as we continue to progress.
