Evening From The Archives: Black History Month Special with Stacey Abrams
In honor of Black History Month, we’re diving into our archives to bring back some of our favorite and most impactful Commonwealth Club programs of the last few years. From Dr. Ibram X. Kendi talking about his groundbreaking book How to Be an Antiracist with Alicia Garza in 2019 to Stacey Abrams discussing the fight for voting rights with Pod Save America’s Dan Pfeiffer last year, we’ve been honored to host some of the brightest and most influential Black speakers.
For our second program, we're re-airing one of our biggest conversations of 2020. Stacey Abrams, who lost her race for governor of Georgia in 2018 by a razor-thin margin, joined us and "Pod Save America" co-host Dan Pfeiffer to discuss her just-published book Our Time Is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America. The tireless work of Abrams and other Georgia activists and organizers in 2020 flipped the Peach State blue for the first time since 1992, helping deliver the presidency to Joe Biden and sending two Democrats to the U.S. Senate.
Join us for an Evening from the Archives special, and join the live chat to talk about the program and the Club with other members and supporters.
