If you live in the U.S. then we’re sure your all too familiar with issues concerning poverty.In fact, the Occupy movement helped to spark conversation about income disparities, and economic policies that were implemented, that negatively impacted the poor.
Prior to the Occupy movement, media personality/author Tavis Smiley teamed up with Princeton University professor/activist Cornel West, for the Poverty Tour. The two men traveled to 19 U.S. cities to shed light on the growing poverty rate in America. The news media doesn’t seem to focus much attention on the poverty in America.Therefore, Tavis and Cornel helped to give those people a voice.
Tonight both Tavis and Cornel, will be joined by filmmaker Michael Moore, and financial adviser Suze Orman for the “Remaking America: From Poverty to Prosperity.” The discussion takes place tonight at George Washington University and will be televised life on C-SPAN at 6:30pm. You can also watch it live here on Global Hip Hop Battles.
We encourage everyone to watch this important discussion!
