LIVE: President Biden Conducts A Roundtable With Black Essential Workers

Watch LIVE: POTUS’ conversation with essential workers moderated by Domestic Policy Advisor Susan Rice.

The roundtable with Black essential workers began at 1:33 p.m., a bit after the scheduled 1:15 start time.
 
POTUS and Susan Rice were already seated at separate round tables when we entered at 1:31. They are facing a large screen featuring a live feed— it’s a four box — with the individuals taking part (names in last pool note). The text on screen above the feeds reads: “Honoring our history.”
 
Rice led off, saying that frontline workers are “heroes” and noting the disproportionate impact of covid on Black Americans.
