Tavis Smiley has come a long way from his humble beginnings in Gulfport, Mississippi (PDF).
From his celebrated conversations with world figures, to his work to inspire the next generation of leaders, as a broadcaster, author, advocate, and philanthropist, Tavis Smiley continues to be an outstanding voice for change. Smiley hosts the late night television talk show Tavis Smiley on PBS and radio show The Tavis Smiley Show from Public Radio International (PRI).
In addition to his radio and television work, Smiley has authored fourteen books. His memoir, What I Know for Sure: My Story of Growing Up in America, became a New York Times best-seller, and the book he edited, Covenant with Black America, became the first nonfiction book by a Black-owned publisher to reach #1 on The New York Times’ best-sellers list.
In his new game-changing book, The Rich and the Rest of Us, Smiley along with his co-author Dr. Cornel West, challenge all Americans to re-examine their assumptions about poverty in America—what it really is and how to eradicate it.
