      Barbara Lee and Elihu Harris Lecture Series Presents Ari Berman

      The Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center in Oakland continues its popular Barbara Lee and Elihu Harris Lecture Series with author, journalist, political pundit and expert in voter registration and suppression Ari Berman Saturday, September 28, at 7 pm at the Marriott Hotel Grand Ballroom in downtown Oakland. Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley will join Berman for introduction and comments. The long-running lecture series presents civic leaders from across the country in lively and relevant presentations centered on Dr. King's catalytic question: "Where do we go from here: chaos or community?" The Lecture Series is co-presented by the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center and Peralta Community College District and the September 28 lecture is sponsored by Gilead Science, East Bay Community Foundation, East Bay Regional Park District and IBEW Local 595. The lecture is free of charge and RSVPs may be made by calling the Freedom Center at 510-434-3988.

His stories have also appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, Politico and The Guardian. He is a frequent guest and political commentator on MSNBC, NPR, PBS and C-Span. Berman's work has earned him an Izzy Award for outstanding achievement in independent media and a place on the FD200 - 200 awardees whose work embodies Frederick Douglass's enduring legacy of social change. His frequent speaking topics include voting rights and racialized voter suppression; American politics; the state and future of democracy; civil rights; the intersection of money and politics; the 2020 census
