Smiley & West at the Paramount...the DVD!

Cornel West and Tavis Smiley were absolutely floored by the turnout at the Paramount on April 28, in which they discussed the current political climate in the context of "The Rich and the Rest of Us:  A Poverty Manifesto".  If you missed the live event, a pledge of $50 will get you a special DVD we made, $75 gets you their book, or, for a $120 pledge, get both!
