Award-winning broadcaster Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West, one of the nation's leading democratic intellectuals, co-hosts of Public Radio's Smiley & West, now take on the "P" word-poverty.The Rich and the Rest of Us is the next step in the journey that began with "The Poverty Tour: A Call to Conscience." Smiley and West's 18-city bus tour gave voice to the plight of impoverished Americans of all races, colors, and creeds. With 150 million Americans persistently poor or near poor, the highest numbers in over five decades, Smiley and West argue that now is the time to confront the underlying conditions of systemic poverty in America before it's too late.By placing the eradication of poverty in the context of the nation's greatest moments of social transformation- such as the abolition of slavery, woman's suffrage, and the labor and civil rights movements-ending poverty is sure to emerge as America's 21st -century civil rights struggle.As the middle class disappears and the safety net is shredded, Smiley and West, building on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., ask us to confront our fear and complacency with 12 poverty changing ideas. They challenge us to re-examine our assumptions about poverty in America-what it really is and how to eliminate it now., SOC SCI, SOC045000PHI019000BUS039000, SOCIAL SCIENCE / Poverty & Homelessness, Smiley, Tavis,1964-, Smiley, Tavis,1964-author., The authors re-examine our assumptions about poverty in America--what it really is and how to eliminate it now., The rich and the rest of us :a poverty manifesto /Tavis Smiley ; Cornel West., The rich and the rest of us :a poverty manifestoTavis Smiley, Cornel West., United States, Wealth, West, Cornel,joint author., West, Cornel., [United States]:Hay House Publishing ,2012., computerc, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital.,, n-us---, online resourcecr, text file, texttxt
