Q Commons began as a single conference before spinning off local franchises, in the same way that TED Talks did, and on February 26 three “global” speakers—author Malcolm Gladwell, journalist Soledad O’Brien, and television producer Mark Burnett—will make a live simulcast to 10,000 people in 75 cities around the world
In the inaugural Q event last October, more than 10,000 people in some 60 cities globally participated.
The 'Q' in Q Commons stands for questions as a way to engage audiences in dialogue around tough issues facing many of our communities.
Soledad O'Brien, who often covers race relations, will be one of the presenters for the national simulcast.
