Posted By on Wed, Mar 9, 2011 at 4:30 PM

From a UA Bookstores press release:

Dr. Cornel West, one of America’s most provocative public intellectuals, will be speaking at the University of Arizona. His talk, “Borders to Democracy,” will critically examine diversity issues, offering Dr. West’s unique “bluesman” assessment of the broader implications surrounding race and immigration in the United States.

Speaking as part of the “Who Draws the Line? Social Justice Perspectives on Diversity” series, Dr. West’s insights will provide a unique perspective into highly contested, timely issues facing the state of Arizona. This thought provoking and inspiring event will add another layer to the dynamic debate already taking place.

The event will be held April 1st on the University of Arizona campus in Centennial Hall from 7pm-8:30pm and is free and open to the public. The opening hour will feature Dr. West’s insights, followed by a question and answer session.
