During a crucial time for the sustainability of minority schools, Obama plans to make a visit to the nation’s #1 public HBCU.

A Conversation with The President: Sports, Race, and Achievement will air on ESPN and WatchESPN Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 10 p.m.

The program will be taped earlier in the day in front of a live audience of students and other invited guests.

President Obama will talk lessons of leadership; the “My Brother’s Keeper” Initiative; the current role of HBCUs; athletes and social activism and more, according to The Undefeated.

The one-hour student forum is presented by ESPN’s The Undefeated. The Undefeated is ESPN’s initiative to intersect sports, race, and culture.

“We are honored to host this town hall featuring the president at one of the leading historically black universities in the country,” said Kevin Merida, ESPN Senior Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of The Undefeated. “We expect a vibrant conversation about the present and the future, and about the challenges facing black students.”

“It is a privilege to host President Obama on our campus for meaningful dialogue on a number of diverse and impactful topics that are critically important to address opportunities for growth for the young people in our nation,” said NC A&T Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. “As the nation’s largest HBCU, it is our responsibility to ensure they have the support and resources they need to become global leaders.”
