Cornel West

“Human history for the most part has been a cycle of hatred and revenge and indifference and callousness to the weak and vulnerable. But we are experiencing an awakening that is what happens in america, right when america is about to go under you get a spiritual and moral awakening.”Cornel West

Cornel West has diverse influences to say the least; crediting jazz giants John Coltrane and Sarah Vaughan with helping him understand human suffering. West sees civil rights pioneer, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel as one of the great treasures of the 20th century.
