Friday, October 16, 2009

The Takeaway's Farai Chideya speaks to Anna Deavere Smith about "The Value."

Today we present the first installment in a new multimedia series called “The Value,” hosted by our correspondent Farai Chideya. The series explores what we — as individuals and as a society — place value on.

Farai sat down with Anna Deavere Smith, who is an award-winning playwright, actress and professor famous for her “documentary theatre.” Her newest, play, “Let Me Down Easy,” focuses on the issue of our nation’s health care and is now playing at New York's Second Stage Theater.

Family, friends, and neighbors they all matter more then money. I have known this since the 1980's when I reached my 20s. Money plays into this only to the extent that our system is focused on money. The Bible is correct when it states ' the love of money is the root of all evil'. We can see that plainly when we reflect on Washington DC / Wall st. / Corporations and Globalism.
