Watch “ColorLines: Race and Economic Recovery,” Only on LinkTV

By Guest Contributor Seth Wessel, originally posted at RaceWire

President Obama says the stimulus saved or created 2 million jobs in 2009. But is the recovery really working? The American dream of good jobs and strong communities is still just a dream for too many. The unfair economy hurts certain groups more, and that ends up hurting everyone. From the bottom line to the unemployment line to the color line, watch a new in-depth program from Link TV and Applied Research Center for a closer look — ColorLines: Race and Economic Recovery.

Tune in to Link TV Friday, February 12, for ColorLines: Race and Economic Recovery on DIRECTV Channel 375 or DISH Network Channel 9410 at 6:30pm Pacific, 7:30pm Central and 8:30 pm Eastern. After the show, join us on Twitter @racialjustice, as we host a roundtable discussion on what we’ve seen.

ColorLines: Race and Economic Recovery follows communities making ends meet in The Great Recession. The program narrates the moving story of Tisha, mother of three in Connecticut, facing a social safety net shredded further by the crisis. Then the program goes to Los Angeles, where community-based organization SCOPE has mobilized to win green jobs for communities of color.

This half-hour magazine-style show is hosted by Chris Rabb, Founder of www.afro-netizen.com and Author of forthcoming book “Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity.”

The in-studio guest is Tram Nguyen, journalist who has written extensively on racial justice issues and Author of “We Are All Suspects Now: Untold Stories from Immigrant America After 9/11.” Tram is former Editor of ColorLines Magazine and now works at the California Reinvestment Coalition.
