FYI. Cornel West is speaking to a PACKED symposium tonight. Harvey Gantt Center, NC

in case anyone wants to follow



https://www.ganttcenter.org/calendar/gantt-symposium-2015-dr-cornel-west/

There's no livestream but the twitter tag is #GanttSymposium and people there are livetweeting.

Great stuff coming out. From random tweets:

A condition of truth is to allow suffering to speak.

Integrity and love has to be at the center of all change.

"Rich kids get taught, poor kids get tested."

"Indifference to evil is evil itself."

Indifference to evil is worse than evil itself. Don't just celebrate success and ignore I justice. @CornelWest #ganttsymposium

The peacock struts because it can't fly.

You have to lift as you climb. Don't forget to lift as you climb. That's integrity.

America's 1st sin was the removal and genocide of indigenous people. The 2nd was slavery.

Justice is what love looks like in public.

Any body in this country that tells the truth about white supremacy should come to terms with the possibility of death

On being asked to run for POTUS "It is like asking a jazz musician to play in a military band"

2. No pics yet. We'll have to wait for the video.

I'd be afraid to lol! No seriously, there aren't pics yet except for Cornel and Harvey Gantt on stage. It's sisters and brothers tweeting if that helps. I guess we're not very selfie people lol. There's only this one so far, and I LOVE it for her expression of total joy.

4. Good photos

 

And as to the selfie thing... we at times have to work to get good photos... we have explained to people of color, this is a reality of photography, the technical challenges especially in shadows... but we have the knowledge to do it. LOL
