About this Event

Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ) announces its Democratic Mayoral Candidates Forum at the Museum of the American Revolution (101 S 3rd St, Philadelphia, PA 19106) on Thursday, April 20 at 6 pm. For over twenty years, PABJ has hosted this forum focused on issues impacting the local Black community. The eight viable mayoral candidates who have confirmed their attendance at this event are Amen Brown, Jeff Brown, Allan Domb, Derek Green, Helen Gym, Cherelle Parker, Rebecca Rhynhart, and Maria Quiñones Sánchez.

Candidates will participate in an evening of spirited and curated questions asked by four moderators from the local media: CBS3 News Anchor Ukee Washington, WWDB-AM Host Archbishop Mary Floyd Palmer, WURD Program & News Director Jamyra Perry, and Philadelphia Citizen Columnist Jemille Q. Duncan. Owens, who is the Editor at Large for Philadelphia Magazine, will serve as the host of the forum. Responses will be timed and candidates were notified in advance to be cordial, respectful, and civil to one another.

Registration to the Forum is FREE, but required and can be found at via Eventbrite. Doors open at 5:30 pm, with guests being seated at 6 pm for the program to begin. Complimentary refreshments, snacks, and beverages will be provided. At 5:30 pm until the program starts, guests are invited to a free visit at the museum's groundbreaking special exhibition "Black Founders: The Forten Family of Philadelphia."
