Bernie Sanders had a busy Wednesday in Philadelphia, which, in a matter of hours, took him from a closed-door Inquirer-Daily News editorial board to a massive 10,200-person rally at Temple University's Liacourus Center.

But in between, the Vermont Senator spoke spent an hour with more than 200 people at Tindley Temple United Methodist Church in South Philly.

Billed as a #BlackVotersMatter conversation, Tindley Temple, an African American parish, drew a predominantly young and white crowd to the discussion. About one-third of the audience was people of color, but they had the microphone to press Sanders on the issues.
