Do you Know Cornel West?

On the next Your Call, we'll play an interview Rose Aguilar recently did with Princeton Professor Cornel West. After several books about race and democracy, Dr. West shares his personal story in a new memoir called Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud. He writes about how education transformed him from a "gangster with raw rage" into a civil rights activist. Dr. West will talk about moving to an all white neighborhood in Sacramento, California in 1967, meeting Ronald Reagan for the first time, and the continuing struggle for social justice. That's on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Dr. Cornel West, professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University
