Tonight, Brown Man Thinking Hard will be one of the featured political blogs on the TV ONE Election Night special. I'll be providing regular updates on last minute voter suppression efforts and voter reactions here in Georgia.

    Silver Spring, MD -- TV One will offer comprehensive coverage of the Presidential election returns November 4, beginning at 7 PM ET, with Election Night 08: A Vote for Change, anchored by team members from its highly successful Democratic convention coverage in August.

    With seven different remote locations around the country, including live cameras at the McCain and Obama headquarters and coverage from the Associated Press' national vote tally center, TV One is ready to document this historic night from all angles. Arthur Fennel and Joe Madison , of TV One DNC Coverage, return as host along with Jacque Reid anchoring from the TV One Election Newsroom. The anchor team will be joined by Tom Joyner, Michael Eric Dyson and more who will provide commentary all night long. Shawta Walcott, one of the top pollsters in the country, will be on board analyzing the votes and exit polling.

    As the first polls close in the East at 7 pm (ET), TV One will be anchored in Sen. Obama's election night headquarters in Chicago, ground-zero for this historic event. In addition, Roland Martin, who TV One shares with CNN, will be reporting live from CNN Election Headquarters in New York.

    This election is expected to have unprecedented turnout among young people and African-Americans, and TV One has responded with remote broadcasts from two colleges in battleground states: Florida A&M and North Carolina A&T . Here, we will hear and see first hand how these groups are responding to the election in real time.

    Finally, TV One Online offers late breaking developments in the campaigns and around the world. A special correspondent in the Election Newsroom will be reporting what's going on online with the election in real time.

    With news, analysis, insight and historical perspective, TV One will chronicle what could turn out to be the most important event in the African-American community in this century. TV One's election night promises to be one exiting and compelling ride.

    Witness history take place only on TV One, November 4 at 7 pm (ET).

I've had a whole lot of fun with this blog since I started it. I hope all of you who read this blog regularly have enjoyed it half as much as I have. I can't think of a better way to have my efforts recognized than to be asked to participate in the national media coverage of the most important moment in black history in my lifetime.

NOTE: Shoot me an email at brownmanthinking at gmail dot com or comment on my blog if you want to express how you feel tonight - who knows, it might make the broadcast.
