Does anyone have any information about black folks living in India?  We are considering a move to teach in Mumbai with our 10 year old son and wonder about others experience there.  (drewkobi@gmail.com)

Will you be there? Because I will... 
 
Join us for a Google+ Hangout on Air on Monday, Aug. 5 at 5 pm ET/2 pm PT as we introduce our flagship show, “America Tonight”! Special correspondent Soledad O’Brien and host Joie Chen join digital producer Azmat Khan and the “America Tonight” team to discuss how they’re doing news differently.
 
You’ll get a sneak peek into upcoming stories and learn more about the show’s mission to tell urgent, important and underreported stories with the quality, depth and time they deserve.
 
The Google+ Hangout on Air is also an opportunity for you to help us find those stories. We want to hear from you! Tweet @AJAM(https://twitter.com/ajam) with #AJAMLive or leave a comment below to give us your thoughts on the following topics:
 
1) How should a nightly current affairs program serve you?
2) #AllAmericans: Share first-person stories from Americans who usually go unheard.
3) #WhatWorks: Successful solutions to problems, with concrete demonstrable results. These can include anything from a scientific breakthrough, to a medical cure, to a program that remedies social problems, to an individual who changes lives for the better.
 
“America Tonight” producers will be looking through your pitches and selecting a handful to be featured in the Hangout, and you may even see your story idea on the show when the channel launches Aug. 20.
 
Be sure to RSVP here for the Google+ Hangout on Air on Aug. 5, and invite your friends to join too!
