On May 19, President Joe Biden delivered two significant speeches to Black voters. He started his day with a commencement address at Morehouse College, a historically Black liberal arts college for men. Despite media reports of massive protests, there were none. Later, he spoke at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s (NAACP) “Fight for Freedom Fund” dinner in Detroit. 

In both speeches, Biden highlighted his administration’s $16 billion investment in historically Black colleges and universities, the historically low Black unemployment rate, efforts to reduce prescription drug prices, and actions on student debt relief.

He also emphasized his appointment of Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, and noted that he has appointed more Black judges to the federal bench than any other president in history combined.
