When Tanzina Vega began hosting The Takeaway, she identified three gaps our country needs to address: the wealth gap, the truth gap and the empathy gap.
One year later, when it comes to inequality, misinformation and understanding, are we further apart today than we were then?
As she marks her first anniversary hosting the show, join Tanzina for a free live broadcast from The Greene Space with guests Jelani Cobb, staff writer at The New Yorker; Javier Zamora, Salvadorian American poet and author of the collection Unaccompanied; Andre Perry, Rubenstein Fellow at the Brookings Institution and author of the forthcoming book Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Cities; Ziwe Fumudoh, comedian and writer for Showtime’s Desus and Mero; and Indira Lakshmanan, executive editor of The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and regular columnist for The Boston Globe.
Following the show, she’ll take audience questions and give a behind-the-scenes peek at what goes into making the daily broadcast.
