National “Black and White Tour” Featuring FreedomWorks’ Matt Kibbe and Deneen Borelli to Visit Independence, OH

WHAT: FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe (author of Hostile Takeover) and Outreach Director Deneen Borelli (author of Blacklash) will join activists from the greater Cleveland area for an honest and frank discussion about issues of race and the economy. This event is part of the national “Black and White” tour, which made its debut at FreePAC Ohio in September.

The tour will make its first round of stops in 11 states: Ohio, Florida, Indiana, Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Utah.

WHEN: Friday, October 5th, from 6:30-8:30pm ET

6:30–7:30pm ET: Remarks by Matt Kibbe and Deneen Borelli, followed by Q&A

7:30–8:30pm ET: Book Signing (Hostile Takeover and Blacklash) and Reception

WHERE: The DoubleTree Hotel Cleveland-Independence, 6200 Quarry Lane, Independence, Ohio, 44131.

WHY: Liberal economic policy disproportionately harms the black community. While general unemployment is currently 8.1 percent, unemployment in the black community is at a shocking 14.1 percent. Energy price increases fall hardest on minority households across the nation. The housing and subprime-mortgage crisis stands to cost minority homeowners 40 percent more of their wealth than white homeowners in similar circumstances.

People of all races, creeds, and colors benefit from more freedom—and suffer in its absence. If America hopes to build a better, more tolerant society, individuals need to advance the ideas of freedom and liberty. Simply put: Freedom is a “black and white” issue.
