This February, BAM will host senator Bernie Sanders as he dives into the details of his latest book with philosopher, Dr. Cornel West.
Co-presented by BAM and Greenlight Bookstore, the Evening of Conversation will be held on Feb. 20 at the BAM Opera House beginning at 8 p.m.
The evening will feature discussion around Sanders latest publication, It’s OK to Be Angry About Capitalism.
In the book, Sanders presents a vision for democracy as we should know it and what he believes would be possible if the political revolution took place if we would recognize that economic rights are human rights.
Sanders is currently in his third term in the U.S. Senate and is the longest serving independent member of congress. He is currently the chair of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Sanders also sits on the Environment and Public Works Committee.
Throughout his career, Sanders has been a champion for tuition-free public colleges and universities, global warming initiatives and rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure.
On Feb. 20, Sanders will engage with West, author of more than 20 books and currently the Dietrich Bonhoeffer chair at Union Theological Seminary. West is a former professor of the practice of public philosophy at Harvard University and professor emeritus at Princeton University.
Tickets for the event are $40 and include a signed hardcover copy of It’s OK to Be Angry About Capitalism.
Tickets will go on sale on Jan. 24 for BAM members and Jan. 26 for the general public. The BAM Opera House is located at 30 Lafayette Ave. To purchase tickets for more information, click here.
