Tavis Smiley and Cornel West
Poverty Tour 2.0: A Call to Conscience
2011 - 2012
You ask, what can a philosopher and broadcaster do about poverty? The answer is simple, do what we do best and use our public platforms to raise consciousness and raise the issue of poverty higher on the American agenda.
Smiley & West are going on
a road trip to highlight the plight of the poor people of all races, colors, and creeds so they will not be forgotten, ignored, or rendered invisible during this difficult and dangerous time of economic deprivation and political cowardice.
