ConverZations That Matter: Navigating the Boundaries of Race, Class, and Gender is a dialogue series beginning on September 30 that honors and acknowledges the historic wounds and suffering from the past while simultaneously holding a question of hope and possibility for the future. That question is, "What would healing look like?"
The series opens with an evening with Cornel West titled 'Speaking Our Vision of Hope and Possibility Out Loud!' The New York Times has called Princeton Professor Cornel West, "one of America's most provocative public intellectuals." West calls himself "a bluesman in the life of the mind." His book "Race Matters" is a contemporary classic. In his long-awaited memoir, "Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud," West offers a compelling exploration of faith, family, philosophy, love, and service. He is a mesmerizing speaker, a dynamic and insightful philosopher, and a committed social activist. With astute intellect and ferocious moral vision, he continuously challenges us to re-envision the possibilities of who we are.
The program includes a very special spoken word, hip-hop tribute to Dr. West by several Bay Area artists including, Drew Dellinger, Seasunz, and friends.
The series continues through November with presentations by Belvie Rooks, Thomas DeWolf, and Amde Hamilton and friends.
