You’re invited to join me Thursday night at 8:30 on KCET as we spend the day on the campus of Occidental College in Eagle Rock retracing the steps of President-elect Barack Obama who spent two years there as an undergraduate student from 1979 to 1981.
Included in the program is a conversation with his very first political science professor, a visit with one of his fellow students, and a look inside his actual dorm room. We also stand on the exact steps where he made his first political speech!
It’s interesting, fun, and enlightening - and gives us all a better understanding of the Barack Obama-Southern California connection.
The adventure continues...
This special edition of California’s Gold airs Thursday, November 13th at 8:30 pm and repeats that night at 12:30. It also airs again at 7:30 pm on Friday, November 28th. This program will be fed statewide to all PBS affiliates in January.
