If you’re a Colorlines.com fan, you’re likely also a fan of comedian W. Kamau Bell’s hit politics show on the FX Network, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. But did you know that Kamau is also on the board of Colorlines.com’s publisher, the Applied Research Center? And that he and his fellow ARC board member, author and professional social-media realtalker Deanna Zandt, are hosting Facing Race 2012, the largest national multiracial gathering on racial justice, presented by Colorlines.com and ARC? And did you know that this year is ARC’s 30th birthday?
Well! All these questions and more will be answered (“yes!”) once you watch the new video from the Facing Race team, shot on location at the Totally Biased writer’s room in New York City. If you haven’t already, register for the conference today; it’s an unprecedented opportunity to meet today’s movement leaders, and to see them talk about the work they do and the issues that move their worlds. Stay tuned to our updating list of panels, workshops, and speakers. And like Deanna and Kamau say in the video, this year’s keynote speaker is Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Diaz! You’ll want to be in the room to hear what he has to say about the presidential election results.
