According to CNN’s announcement, Coates will be joined by Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms of Atlanta; Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, DC; Mayor London Breed of San Francisco and Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago, who will answer questions submitted by voters across the United States. These four African American female leaders will discuss how their cities are responding to the unique challenges resulting from the spread of Covid-19 and the national reckoning following George Floyd’s death.
