Hillary Clinton Heads to Detroit for NAACP Dinner

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton travels to Detroit this weekend to speak at the NAACP’s annual Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner.

The front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the event, which the NAACP touts as the largest sit-down dinner in the nation.

It often attracts high-profile politicians including last year’s appearance by Vice President Joe Biden.

The discussion typically involves issues affecting African Americans.

That’s an electorate Hillary Clinton has been trying to mend fences with after being criticized for supporting a crime bill enacted during her husband’s presidency that many say resulted in disproportionately imprisoning blacks.
