Wednesday forum: Race and recession

By Krissah Thompson

The Washington Post will hold a community forum Wednesday night in Prince George’s County to discuss the impact of the recession on local families.

The conversation, which will be moderated by nationally syndicated personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary, is being spurred by a groundbreaking poll out this week by The Post, the Kaiser Family Foundation and Harvard University.

Singletary will lead a conversation with a roundtable of newsmakers, including Julianne Malveaux, a noted economist and educator; Jared Bernstein, chief economist and economic adviser to Vice President Biden; Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus; Michael A. Fletcher, a Washington Post national economics reporter; the Rev. Al Sharpton, president of the National Action Network; Jeff Johnson, a political commentator on the nationally syndicated "Tom Joyner Morning Show"; and Sophia Nelson, a political commentator for Jet magazine and MSNBC.

Here's more information about the forum. Registation is now closed. We have reached capacity, but live video will be available here at 6:30 p.m.)

1. The "RSVP" link shortcut is broken/inoperational as of 2/22 ~5:30 p.m. EST.

2. I disagree with how WP editors have characterized the poll results as "groundbreaking." Slightly surprising, yes. Dismaying, perhaps. Ominous, could be. But groundbreaking, not quite.
