Other networks might simply air it but we're pulling out all the stops to do justice to this amazing day.  As TV One President and CEO Johnathan Rodgers, said "We are a television network that is designed to celebrate African-American achievement . . . If Hillary (Clinton) was the nominee, we would not be covering this year's Democratic convention."
