Chuck Collins – Lecture and discussion
Friday, March 23, 7:30pm, First Church in Belmont Parish Hall
With the heart of an agitator and the soul of a storyteller, Collins upends our assumptions about America’s deep wealth divide-one that, for the first time in recent history, locks the nation’s youth into a future defined by their class and wealth at birth; limits our ability to address crises like climate change; and creates a world that no one, not even the rich, will ultimately want to live in. He busts the myths that define our views of rich and poor, offers bold new solutions for bridging the economic divide, and suggests re-engaging the wealthy to rebuild communities for a resilient future.
Chuck Collins-the great-grandson of one of America’s iconic industrialists-grew up in the one percent, gave his inheritance away at 26, and became one of the nation’s leading thinkers and activists on solving inequality. He is based at the Institute for Policy Studies and writes extensively inequality. His previous books include 99 to 1 and Wealth and Our Commonwealth (with Bill Gates Sr.). His new book is Born on Third Base.
