I saw Dr. West speak when I was at KU and it had a lasting impact on me. He’s most definitely one of my modern-day heroes and a pretty badass one at that. If you didn’t see him on Real Time with Bill Maher, you missed a good episode.
Dr. Cornel West arrested after he led a mock trial against Goldman Sachs in Zuccotti Park. (More information to follow on this as more becomes available).
