Upcoming Event: Inequality For All showing at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art

1240429_551957761507269_819421458_nThe United States has by far the most unequal distribution of income out of all developed countries. The top 1 percent of earners holds more than 35 percent of the nation’s overall wealth, while the bottom 50 percent controls just 2.5 percent. As inequality has skyrocketed over the past four decades, middle-class incomes have deteriorated. In 1978 , the typical male worker earned $48,302; in 2010, that worker earned just $33,751.

These troubling facts are the basis of “Inequality for All”, a new documentary narrated by UC Berkeley professor and former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich. The Oklahoma City Museum of Art will be showing Inequality for All for four days in early December.  

In the film, Reich helps us understand how the extreme inequality we are now facing has roots in economic and policy changes that began over 30 years ago. The film makes a case for how we got here and where we are headed if we don’t act soon. You can watch the  trailer for the film here  or read our Journal Record column discussing the film here.

Showtimes are:

  • Thursday, December 5, 7:30 p.m
  • Friday & Saturday, December 6 & 7, 5:30 p.m
  •  Sunday, December 8, 2 p.m.

Following the Sunday showing, Robert Reich will participate by Skype in a discussion with audience members.

You can pre-order tickets now through the OKCMOA website. Tickets are $9 for adults, $7 for seniors, children and groups, with discounts for museum members.
