It is hot as hell in DC. It is even hotter under the collars of some African American women who are asking: Are we not civil rights leaders?

A readout of the meeting said "the President discussed the continued efforts his administration is making to spur job creation and economic growth."

The President also spoke with the two civil rights leaders about dramatic efforts his Administration has already made to address
