Vivica Fox & Angela Bassett Campaign For Hillary Clinton + Rev. Al Sharpton & Bernie Sanders Chop It Up Over Breakfast In NYC
YBF celebs have joined in on the campaign trail for presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders from the Democratic party. Find out how Vivica Fox, Angela Bassett and Rev. Al Sharpton are getting in the mix inside…
YBF actress Vivica Fox found time out of her busy schedule to join the presidential campaign trail. Viv is currently filming for two new movies, the upcoming sequel film Independence Day: Resurgence and a new drama film called True To The Game. But, she took a moment to use her starpower for the greater good.
The 51-year-old actress paid a visit to Denmark Technical College in Denmark, South Carolina to campaign for presidential hopeful/ Democrat Hillary Clinton. She encouraged the youth to get out there and vote while sharing a few good reasons why they should cast their vote for Hillary.
After her speech, she hugged, snapped selfies and signed autographs for her fans:
We know who has Aunt Viv's vote.

Following a loss to Bernie Sanders in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton is upping the ante in South Carolina.
“American Horror Story” star Angela Bassett was also in the state to talk to students at South Carolina State University.
Reportedly, African Americans are expected to make up more than half of Democratic primary voters when the polls open, so it’s important that Hillary reach out to the African-American community if she wants their vote. And it appears she's doing that with these YBF endorsements.
