Cornel West Lecture at Long Beach City College

The man is a real, live prophetic firebrand. I was amazed, practically shocked, at the power and intensity of his speaking.

And believe me, I'm generally not coming from his point of view. Still, pretty amazing talk.

College President Eloy Oakley tweeted:

Also, check out West's latest book, Black Prophetic Fire.

Like I always say, it's better to know your enemies, so I read everything I can get my hands on, left and right. It makes me a better teacher frankly, and damn if Cornel West doesn't make some good points regardless of ideology.
