At the roundtable meeting, Romney was reportedly welcomed by the school’s founder, Kenny Gamble, who briefed the presidential candidate on the school’s mission.
Gamble told Mitt Romney, “It is even more important today that we discuss education for the African American community because of the conditions that are in the African American community, as relates to prisons, crime. So, I’m glad you’re here.”
