My interview with journalist Soledad O’Brien

I was recently invited to speak at a conference at Rhode Island College on race, the media and election 2012, where legendary activist Angela Davis was the keynote speaker.  I had a chance to talk to Dr Davis about the history of racial inclusion in social movements and how activism should be more global.  If you can’t see the audio player below, click here.

I talked with actor Forest Whitaker and Earth Institute Jeffrey Sachs about technology, social good and Whitaker’s new charity PeaceEarth.  If you can’t see the audio player below, click here.
