Our next event is happening in exactly one week! Do not let the winter weather deter as we discuss current social issues with longstanding professor and political figure Cornel West. Hope to see you there!

Tue 7:00 PM ESTFirst Parish ChurchCambridge, MA

Political activist, author and university professor Cornel West will speak at Cambridge Forum on Tuesday, December 5 about his national best-seller Race Matters. First published in 1993 on the one-year anniversary of the L.A. riots, the book has since become a groundbreaking classic on race in America.

Race Matters speaks to despair, black conservatism, myths about black sexuality, the crisis in leadership in the black community, and the legacy of Malcolm X. Now more than ever, Cornel West argues, Race Matters is a book for all Americans, as it helps us to build a genuine multiracial democracy in the new millennium.

Joel Clement recently resigned his post as a senior Department of Interior official over the suppression of facts about implications of climate change o...n human populations. He cited the department’s “poor leadership, waste, and failures on climate change.”
