Tune in for Kamau Right Now! on the eve of Donald Trump's inauguration

On Thursday, January 19th at 7pm, Kamau Right Now! will broadcast live from the Odell Johnson Theater at Laney College in Oakland.  

It's the night before Donald Trump's inauguration, and W. Kamau Bell's guests will include  Pastor Mike McBride, comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh, and Ian Haney Lopez, author of Dog Whistle Politics.  And live music from Con Brio.

The show is sold out, but you can tune in live at 7pm on KALW, and subscribe to the podcast to make sure you don't miss out on future episodes, and to hear the podcast-only "after-party".

Portions of tonight's show will go towards relief organizations for the communities affected by the Oakland Ghostship fire. We hope you'll consider making a contribution as well.

Immediate Oakland Fire Relief.

Gray Area Foundation for the Arts: Fire Relief, Recovery, and Resilience Fund for Oakland Fire.
