JRF Hosts an Evening with MSNBC’s Touré

JRF Hosts an Evening with MSNBC’s Touré

Novelist, essayist and cultural critic Touré shared his unique perspective on national politics, race and the fiscal cliff at a special event on December 6th at JRF headquarters. The co-host of MSNBC’s “The Cycle”, with his pull-no-punches comments, addressed the audience of close to 75 talented young leaders from various industries. The event was part of JRF’s continuing efforts to engage a broader community in both its programming and fundraising goals. Sponsored by JRF’s newly-formed young professionals support group that includes JRF alumni in the New York City area, the event was first in a series that will feature guest “visionaries” who will promote dialogue around topical subjects.
