Things to Do: A Conversation with Cornel West & Tavis Smiley

While, I'm not a huge supporter of author and broadcast journalist Tavis Smiley (mainly because of his abrasive political criticisms of the current administration, which I won't be going into on this blog), I'm quite a fan of the eccentric Cornel West (noted orator and Princeton University professor).  I'd heard a few months ago they'd joined forces for some speaking engagements along with a new radio venture.

The pair will descend upon DC on Friday, January 14, 2011 at 7:30PM and will engage in a lively conversation on one of their favorite topics, African-American history.  It's $20 for the general public, $18 for members of the National Geographic Society, and limited $10 Student Rush tickets will be available the day of.

The event is presented as a preview to the exhibition America I AM: The African American Imprint, which opens February 2 at National Geographic Museum.
