Cornel West: A Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

Streamed live on Jan 15, 2015

Cornel West, Ph.D.; Professor, Union Theological Seminary; Author, Black Prophetic Fire.
In conversation with Van Jones, President and Founder, Dream Corps Unlimited

Praised by The New York Times for his “ferocious moral vision” and hailed by Newsweek as “an elegant prophet with attitude,” Dr. Cornel West bridges the gap between black and white opinion about the country’s problems. As a leading voice in societal commentary, Dr. West marched in civil rights demonstrations, taught at Yale, Harvard, and Princeton and is currently a professor at Union Theological Seminary.

He draws from traditions of Christianity, the black church, Marxism, and neo-pragmatism. Hear his fiery oration on the past, present and future of race and injustice in the United States today in conjunction with the release of his latest book, The Radical King. Join us to celebrate January 15 as Dr. Martin Luther King’s 86th birthday.

    Thanks for sharing this Waltie. Thoroughly enjoyed the discussion between Van Jones & Cornell West. Van Jones is a solid thinker, imho
