      In the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict, President Obama called on all of us to have conversations in our communities about race relations. The Commonwealth Club will convene local voices from the worlds of law, politics, clergy, the arts and the community to share their stories and further substantive attention on the politics of being African American in the Bay Area. Bay Area Pastor Michael McBride recently stated, “It’s not about the verdict but rather about our values.” Join us to take a look at the values and opportunities that can move the Bay Area forward. 

      Come for a 90-minute town hall that will feature short interview, inspiring stories, slam poetry and a community discussion.
