Shirley Sherrod: 'I Can't Say That the President Is Fully Behind Me'

In my interview coming up on " GMA," Shirley Sherrod says that she’s not ready to accept Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s job offer. She wants to hear more from the Secretary and his boss – President Obama.

“I can’t say that the President is fully behind me,” Sherrod told me. “I would hope that he is…I would love to talk to him.”

Sherrod wants to be convinced that the President and his whole team are fully committed to fighting discrimination against African American farmers.

Watch the interview on “GMA.”
