The first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was held last night. A large segment of the debate was about racial healing in the United States.   

Both candidates have been pursuing African-American and Latino voters.

Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence and Linda Lee Tarver, co-chair of the Trump-Pence Michigan African American Advisory Committee, joined us today to take a look back at last night’s debate.

“I believe African-American voters or individuals, particularly here in Michigan, are looking for law and order in their neighborhoods,” Tarver told us.

“Hillary Clinton understands systemic racism has played a major part in race issues in America,” Lawrence said.

Listen to our conversation above for more.
