(AllHipHop News) The League of Young Voters Education Fund (LYVEF), in partnership with AllHipHop.com and Rock the Vote, engaged young voters with an interactive viewing party and panel discussions in Washington, D.C. with #BarackTalk 2012.

Shown live on Ustream, the interactive experience allowed young voters to witness top political, music, and media pundits voice their opinions on President Obama’s State of the Union Address.

#BarackTalk 2012 was highlighted by three discussion panels featuring Dee-1 (rapper/activist), RhymeFest (hip-hop artist), Chuck Creekmur (AllHipHop.com), Janee Bolden (Bossip.com), Andreas Hale (TheWellVersed.com), Shaheem Reid (MTV and XXL), Michael Skolnik (GlobalGrind.com), and more. Viewers joined the conversation by tweeting #BarackTalk, with panelists answering their questions. During the event, the Ustream viewer count exceeded 32,000 viewers.

Additional partners included Cashmere Agency, UStream, TurboVote, Busboys and Poets, Sierra Club, Energy Action Coalition, Green for All, USSA, Black Youth Project, and Headcount. The event was funded in part by the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
