Last week, I had an opportunity to talk with Dr. Cornel West. He is the professor of Religion and African American studies at Princeton University. Hope you enjoy the conversation.
Kathleen Wells: Dr. West, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to speak with me.
Kathleen Wells: Well, I want to thank you for taking the time…
Dr. Cornel West: Thank you so much. I’m sorry to go on, and I hope that my holy anger and righteous indignation was not viewed in any way as either disrespect of either you or my dear brother, Barack Obama. But I’m deeply concerned about this crisis and all this suffering out here.
Kathleen Wells: I really appreciate you taking the time.
Dr. Cornel West: Definitely. You take good care now.
Kathleen Wells: Okay. Thank you very much.
