Tavis Smiley has come a long way from his humble beginnings in Gulfport, Mississippi (PDF).
"In this most multicultural, multiracial & multiethnic America ever, our show tries to get people to reexamine the assumptions they hold, to expand their inventory of ideas and to introduce Americans to each other."
I would be touched and honored to have your support to keep bringing you voices that would otherwise go unheard and help viewers see America in all its rich diversity.
