Three brilliant people, businessman Eric Schmidt, actress and professor Anna Deavere Smith and writer and poet, and director of the Curator Culture series at The Bass Museum in Miami Beach, Tom Healy, conducted a virtual meeting to discuss the current state of our society and the trouble we are in medically, economically, and intellectually.
