Philosopher as Media Matriculator

Black American History month sponsors (see below) expect Shyrock Auditorium to be SRO for tonight's FREE lecture by Cornel West, the Princeton University professor and media talking-head. Dr. West's most recent book Hope on a Tightrope: Words and Wisdom can be previewed at Google Books.

According to his bio at World People's Blog,
West appears in both The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions as one of the elders, Councilor West, who serves on the council of Zion. West’s character advises that “comprehension is not a requisite of cooperation.”

In addition, West provides philosophical commentary on all three Matrix films in The Ultimate Matrix Collection along with integral theorist Ken Wilber. West also made multiple appearances on the popular political show Real Time with Bill Maher.[12][13][14][15][16] West was also featured on Starbucks Coffee Cups with The Way I See It #284 quoted- “You can’t lead the people if you don’t love the people. You can’t save the people, if you don’t serve the people”. .
More details about the lecture at Saluki Times website.

Dr. West did not come cheap. His book promotion is sponsored by:
Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, Black History Month Committee, Student Programming Council, Office of the Associate Chancellor (Diversity), Undergraduate Student Government, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc.
