Pittsburgh, PA — Presenting "The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in about an Hour" at the Center for Popular Democracy

  • The Pittsburgh Convention Center

The W. Kamau Bell Curve is a comedic exploration of the current state of America’s racism, combined with a little (unknown) history, a little Powerpoint, and a whole bunch of Kamau. And because racism is always attacking in new ways and from new angles, Kamau attacks back by constantly adding new material. The W. Kamau Bell Curve is a seamless mix of stand-up comedy, video and audio clips, personal stories and solo theatrical performance.

The Center for Popular Democracy works to create equity, opportunity and a dynamic democracy in partnership with high-impact base-building organizations, organizing alliances, and progressive unions. CPD strengthens our collective capacity to envision and win an innovative pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial and economic justice agenda.
