Event takes place at The International House, 1414 E 59th Street

 

Co-presented by MCA with The University of Chicago, and portoluz as part of WPA 2.0: a brand new deal

 

Marc Bamuthi Joseph, a nationally acclaimed educator and Alpert Award recipient for Theater, teams up with Van Jones, author and jobs advisor to the White House, for a frank discussion about environmental racism, social ecology and collective responsibility in an era of dramatic climate change.  Throughout their long friendship they have paved unique paths toward a national conversation about jobs, manufacturing, and green economy as experienced among members of the black working class. Jones is leader of Rebuild The Dream, the growing movement to rebuild America’s middle class, and this talk is his only local appearance during a national speaking tour. Marc Bamuthi is creator of the movement Life is Living, which is going strong in its sixth year and unites art activism and education as a potent communicative vehicle in the national effort.
