Dr. Cornel West is an American philosopher, political activist, social critic, author, and one of the most influential intellectuals of our time. With a legacy of activism dating back to his childhood and decades of scholarship on race, class and gender, Dr. Cornel West has a wealth of insight on challenging injustice and protecting the rights and freedoms of the most marginalized.

As people all over the world continue to grapple with the legacy and consequences of racism, there is a sense of possibility - that this current moment could be a unique opportunity to address persistent, deeply entrenched injustices. Whether or not that is the case, according to Dr. West, depends on every single one of us and how we choose to respond. In this episode of The Search for Racial Equity, Dr. West shares his wisdom on advancing justice and equality, as well as the importance of truth, love and justice in the struggle for racial equity.

The Search for Racial Equity Series is a global forum offering an in depth study and dialog of racial equity and justice, through forthright discussion and a syllabus that intends to amplify the most authentic and powerful voices of our time and of this movement. We aim to create safe spaces for the most important and authentic discussions.
