Stanford In Entertainment is honored to host Mayor Michael Tubbs, '12, and documentary director Marc Levin (SLAM, CHASING THE THUNDER) as they discuss the release of the new HBO documentary STOCKTON ON MY MIND that follows Mayor Tubb's first term as mayor.

In 2016, Stanford graduate Michael Tubbs became the youngest and first African-American mayor of Stockton, California. With a long history of economic turmoil, crime, violence, and low literacy rates, Stockton was ripe for urban renewal projects. No one knew this better than Stockton native Tubbs. He allowed filmmaker Marc Levin to film the behind-the-scenes struggles of his first term as he and his team worked tirelessly to affect change through a universal basic income experiment and a Stockton Scholars program geared towards helping at-risk youths complete higher education.

 

The event is limited to Stanford Alumni/Students.
