Political activist, author and university professor Cornel West will speak at Cambridge Forum on Tuesday, December 5 about his national best-seller Race Matters. First published in 1993 on the one-year anniversary of the L.A. riots, the book has since become a groundbreaking classic on race in America. Race Matters speaks to despair, black conservatism, myths about black sexuality, the crisis in leadership in the black community, and the legacy of Malcolm X. Now more than ever, Cornel West argues, Race Matters is a book for all Americans, as it helps us to build a genuine multiracial democracy in the new millennium.
