Dr. Cornel West: Professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard Divinity School and the department of African and African-American studies at the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
As the country remains divided over recent events, many Americans have begun to evaluate their principles and values as Americans.

Please join us as guest speaker Dr. Cornel West comes to MIT to discuss and examine the institutional provincialism of education in America.
