Cornel West has had to reschedule his public lecture at UNC Asheville due to a family emergency. The public lecture, originally scheduled for October 16 in Kimmel Arena, will now take place at 7:30 p.m., on Wednesday, November 6, in Kimmel Arena at UNC Asheville’s Sherrill Center.
A leading political commentator, progressive activist and public intellectual, West is professor of philosophy and Christian practice at Union Theological Seminary, and professor emeritus at Princeton University.
West appears often on news networks including CNN, on the political comedy programs, Colbert Report and Bill Maher Show, and he is co-host of the public radio program, Smiley & West. West appeared in and provided commentary for the Matrix films, has guest-starred on 30 Rock, and he was once named MTV “Artist of the Week” for his contributions to spoken word and hip-hop albums.
