Episode #2822

KQED World: Thu, Jan 24, 2013 -- 9:30 AM

"Vision for a New America" panel discussion, Part 1 of 4
Nearly 50 million Americans live in poverty, which means that more than 16% of our fellow citizens are struggling to survive. For children, that number is 20% - and, worst of all, for African Americans, the figure is nearly 26%. With all the talk of a slow recovery from the deepest recession since the US depression, there doesn't seem to be much good news for the country's poor.
It's against the stark backdrop of these numbers that Tavis broadcasts 3 nights of a special conversation on poverty. "Vision for a New America: A Future Without Poverty" will examine one of the most important, but often-forgotten issues of our time. Panelists will discuss proven solutions on how government officials can contain the wildfire of American poverty. < br />Guests include: Mariana Chilton, director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities and associate professor of Drexel University's School of Public Health; Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United; Rep. Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH); Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House; John D. Graham, dean, Indiana University School of Public & Environmental Affairs and author of America's Poor and the Great Recession; Jonathan Kozol, author of Fire in the Ashes: Twenty-Five Years Among the Poorest Children in America; Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University; and Cornel West, Union Theological Seminary professor and author.
