Moyers & Company: Living Outside the Tribal Lines

Writer Sherman Alexie describes living outside tribal lines. Friday at 9 p.m.on PBS 6.

This week’s Moyers & Company, begins with a report on striking extremes of wealth and poverty on display in California’s Silicon Valley. Facebook, Google, and Apple are minting millionaires while the area’s homeless -- who’ve grown 20 percent in the last two years -- are living in tent cities at their virtual doorsteps. These are the human faces of economic inequality.

Later, Bill is joined by writer Sherman Alexie. Born on a Native American Reservation, Alexie has been navigating the cultural boundaries of American culture in lauded poetry, novels, short stories, screenplays, even stand-up comedy for over two decades. Alexie discusses the challenges of living in different cultures at the same time, and shares his irreverent perspective on contemporary American life.
