Join Tavis, Arianna Huffington, Cornel West & others discuss America’s Next Chapter
Join me as I and 7 other influential bloggers moderate the online discussion of:
New York Times columnist Bob Herbert suggests that America has blown numerous opportunities over the past decade to be great. America has not taken lead on a vast cooperative effort domestically, internationally to combat terrorism and lay the groundwork for a more peaceful world, American has not secured our best talent to rebuild historic cities with major renovation, and America has not corrected, by drastic means if necessary, the faults in our economic system.
Tavis Smiley will pose some of America’s most challenging questions in a televised symposium featuring eight of the nation’s most influential thinkers, entertainers, politicians and business leaders Cornel West, David Frum, Dana Milbank, Arianna Huffington, Helene Cooper. Questions will include how does each American do his or her part to help us escape the reliance on fossil fuels? Are we becoming more and more accustomed to a sense of helplessness i.e. Katrina and the gulf oil spill? How do we rebuild cities with empty homes and no jobs? When does economic recovery reallyhappen? Have we become a nation that is good at destroying things i.e. school programs, health services, libraries — and the salaries that go with them —as states and cities face their worst cash squeeze since the Great Depression?
We have some work to do my friends and today’s panel represents the individuals at the forefront for change. Our journey to a brighter future begins now and today’s conversation will provide the information you need wrestle with and evoke change.
America’s Next Chapter will be broadcast LIVE on C-SPAN Thursday, January 13. The conversation will rebroadcast for three nights on Tavis Smiley on PBS,Tuesday, January 18 through Thursday, January 20. The conversation will continue during The Tavis Smiley Show and Smiley & West from PRI (Public Radio International).
