One of America's most provocative public intellectuals, Dr. Cornel West 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." Currently the Class of 1943 University Professor in the Center for African American Studies at Princeton, West burst onto the national scene in 1993 with his best-selling book, Race Matters, a searing analysis of racism in American democracy. With astute intellect and ferocious vision, Dr. West continuously challenges modern thought with great efficacy.
