Illustration for article titled The Root and Black Web 2.0 Review Black in America 2

Are we living in a post-racial America? What does being black in America mean today?


Join The Root staff and readers as we screen CNN's "Black in America 2" and host an interactive panel discussion where 20-something professionals in politics, law and medicine respond to your questions and reactions from the show.

The Root and Black Web 2.0 will be live streaming the discussion, so feel free to weigh in with your thoughts.


To submit a question for the panel in advance, post on a comment below. Share your thoughts on CNN's first "Black in America" and any expectations you have for the second installment. Remember to include your city and state, so we can give you a shoutout during the event!

If you live in the DMV area, come out to Busboys and Poets (5th and K Streets location) next Thursday, July 23 from 8 p.m. - 11 p.m. Or tune in and Twitter your thoughts from home. Just be sure to get your voice heard!

What role does race play in the lives of young Americans? You tell us. Go to our Facebook page to RSVP!
