(November 4, 2013)
Cornel West, a leading political commentator and public intellectual, will offer a lecture at Kimmel Arena on the UNC Asheville campus at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6. West's talk is free and open to the public.
West is professor of philosophy and Christian practice at Union Theological Seminary, and professor emeritus at Princeton University. His many books include Race Matters and Democracy Matters.
West often appears on news networks including CNN, on the political comedy programs, Colbert Report and Bill Maher Show, and he is co-host of the public radio program, Smiley & West. He appeared in and provided commentary for the Matrix films, has guest-starred on 30 Rock, and he was once named MTV “Artist of the Week” for his contributions to spoken word and hip-hop albums.
This event was originally scheduled during October but was rescheduled by West due to a family emergency.
