Former President Barack Obama, Warriors star Stephen Curry and singer John Legend are headlining a three-day event in Oakland this month.
The Obama Foundation announced Tuesday the trio will all be speakers at the first national convention for the former president’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance. The alliance aims to “bring together hundreds of young men of color” from Feb. 18-20 to discuss “reducing youth violence, growing impactful mentorship programs, and improving life outcomes for boys and young men of color.”
Obama and Curry will be hosting a town hall in Oakland as part of the conference. The main stage events will be held at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center on Lakeside Drive.
The main stage sessions will also be streamed live on Obama.org. The times of livestreams are as follows:
- Tuesday, Feb. 19, 3 pm – 4:30 pm PT
- Wednesday, Feb. 20, 9:30 am – 11 am PT
- Wednesday, Feb. 20, 3:30 pm – 5 pm PT
My Brother’s Keeper Alliance was founded by Obama after the killing of Trayvon Martin. Curry has been involved in My Brother’s Keeper Alliance events before. He’s appeared in two PSAs for the alliance, and in 2018, he wore a special Under Armour shoe to raise money for the organization.
