Tavis Smiley

Title The Rich and the Rest of UsTavis SmileyRecord unemployment and rampant corporate greed, empty houses but homeless families, dwindling opportunities in a paralyzed nation -- these are the realities of America, land of the free and home of the new middle-class poor.

In The Rich and the Rest of Us, award-winning broadcaster Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West, one of the nation's leading public intellectuals, take on the "p" word -- poverty. They challenge all Americans to re-examine their assumptions about poverty in America -- what it really is and how to eradicate it.
