Tavis Smiley has come a long way from his humble beginnings in Gulfport, Mississippi (PDF).
The Smiley Group, Inc. (TSG) is a communications corporation established in support of human rights and related empowerment issues. TSG serves as the holding company for various enterprises encompassing broadcast and print media, lectures, symposiums, and the Internet.
TSG is centrally located in the heart of beautiful Leimert Park. This architecturally stunning 6,000-square-foot corporate office building underwent a complete renovation. In addition to a completely new exterior and interior, the state-of-the-art facility includes a 16-person fully equipped conference room and a radio broadcast studio, all within a contemporary, professional office setting.
Our organizations have a simple, common purpose: to Enlighten, Encourage, and Empower. We constantly evolve each organization to better meet our community's needs: through informative and inspiring media; through engaging event experiences; and by communicating with people in a way that connects to how they live, work and think.
