Clinton's speech is underway. At the start, she said she had not listened to or read Obama's speech on race. But she praised him for taking on the topic.
"It’s an important topic. Issues of race and gender have been complicated throughout our history. We should remember that this is a historic moment for our party and our country. We will be nominating the first African American or woman for the president of the United States and that is something that America can and should celebrate."
