From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Un-broke: What You Need To Know About Money is a television special that aired on May 29, 2009 at 9 PM Eastern Time on ABC. Mellody Hobson, president of Ariel Investments conceived the show, which featured celebrities including the Jonas Brothers, Oscar the Grouch, Antonio Banderas, Christian Slater, Seth Green, Rosario Dawson, Will Smith, Cedric the Entertainer and Samuel L. Jackson to educate people about money. [1]

Each celebrity talked about a different piece of the economy in their segment. For example, the Jonas Brothers talked about the importance of understanding the stock market. Samuel L. Jackson played an author of self-help books who was out of money and encouraged people to yell, "I'm broke as Hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!" [2]
