The event was moderated by Keli Goff, journalist and contributor to The Daily Beast. Hill Harper, Shaun King, Raqiyah Mays, Rev. Shane Harris, Paula Peebles, Ilyasah Shabazz and David Wilson participated as panelist. From the very beginning, the one could sense there'd be little if any meeting of the minds because the panel, save for Rev. Harris couldn't even define what Progressivism meant. Each was asked, and not one was able to provide an answer with any depth of understanding. It was clear to this observer, these people hadn't even seen the Bernie Sanders' political platform.
