Awakening Our Democracy On 10/20 and 10/22's Late City Edition

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 - 9:00pm to Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 9:40pm

Tune in to Late City Edition at 9 pm on Monday and Tuesday to hear the first discussion in the series Awakening Our Democracy presented by Columbia's Office of University Life. Awakening Our Democracy is a new conversation series on race, ethnicity, disparities, and justice issues at the forefront of the University's and the nation's consciousness. This first discussion entitled "The "American" Dream, Immigration and Belonging" features a panel with Negin Farsad, a TED fellow and social justice comedian; Van C. Tran, an assistant professor of sociology at Columbia University; and Cesar Vargas, the co-director of the Dream Action Coalition and is moderated by Duarte Geraldino from Al Jazeera America. Because the panel is over an hour long, the first half will be played on Tuesday and the second half on Monday.
