Editor reviews

Few people can be as entertaining as they are enlightening in the way Dr. Cornel West can. With his gripping performances and important messages, Dr. West has become one of the strongest and brightest voices in America. The 92nd Street Y has joined Dr. West with philosopher and author Susan Neiman, for a night of intense and entertaining conversation. Listen along as the two great minds, using the election of President Obama as a starting point, attempt to figure out what kind of role race and religion play in American politics.

Summary

What roles do race and religion play in the current election, and what do they say about America today? How do these roles affect the key issues concerning our country? The Class of 1943 Professor at Princeton University, Cornel West is one of America's most provocative public intellectuals and the author of Hope on a Tightrope.

Philosopher Susan Neiman is the director of the Einstein Forum in Berlin and the author of Moral Clarity: A Guide for Grown-Up Idealists.
