KALW Presents Tavis Smiley & Cornel West at The Paramount
On Saturday, April 28th at 6pm, Tavis Smiley and Cornel West will speak about their new book, The Rich and the Rest of Us: A Poverty Manifesto, at The Paramount Theatre in Oakland.
This event is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. We have now reached capacity for the venue, and have closed pre-registration.
KALW is proud to present Tavis Smiley & Dr. West in their only Bay Area appearance, and to be partnering with local organizations that are raising awareness about economic inequality, providing direct services to the poor, and building wealth in poor communities. They will be in the Paramount's lobby on the night of the event, and we hope you'll take the opportunity to learn about what's happening in the grassroots struggle to fight poverty, and get involved.
