Cornel West

Dr. Cornel West, one of America's most provocative public intellectuals, has been a champion for racial justice since childhood. His writing, speaking, and teaching weave together the traditions of the black Baptist Church, progressive politics, and jazz. The New York Times has praised his "ferocious moral vision." His many books include Race MattersDemocracy Matters, and his new autobiography, Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud.
