Dear Members:

Cornel West

This year marks CCPA-BC’s 25th anniversary, and we’re starting it with some exciting news for you: in just a few weeks, together with the BC Black History Awareness Society, we will be co-hosting Dr. Cornel West for a FREE virtual talk! At this event, titled Being a Hope Amid Crises, we’ll explore themes of economics, democracy, racial justice and Black identity.  Of the 20 books he has authored, Dr. West is best known for his classics, Race Matters and Democracy Matters, and for his memoir, Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud. His most recent book, Black Prophetic Fire, offers an unflinching look at nineteenth and twentieth-century African American leaders and their visionary legacies. You may also know him from his frequent appearances on Democracy Now. The event details are below and registration is open now. I hope you can join us!
