The People’s Inaugural Ball
Watch the Peace Ball happening now in Washington, D.C.:
Join Democracy Now! as we livestream from the sold-out 2013 Peace Ball at the historic Arena Stage at The Mead Center For American Theater in Washington, D.C. and see speeches from Amy Goodman, Angela Davis, NAACP’s Benjamin Jealous, Ralph Nader, Julian Bond and others, with performances by Mos Def, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and more.
Special guests include:
Katrina vanden Heuvel
Marian Wright Edelman
Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr.
Unfortunately the likes of Katrina vanden Heuvel, Van Jones, Julian Bond (who I was fortunate enough to meet about 40 years ago), Dave Zirin and Barbara Ehrenreich won’t be invited to the official inaugural balls. Too bad. They have so much to say and to teach us.
Think of this as We the People’s ball, not the corporatocracy’$.
