An Evening with Dr Cornel West

In a rare engagement with one of the leading acclaimed intellectuals of the 20th and 21st century, Dr. West brings to Australia his mission of progressing a culture of critical thought which questions and challenges the status quo of current sociopolitical landscapes, for generations that are not merely socially conscious, but socially involved.

Think Inc. – the team behind bringing to Australia thinkers such as Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Dr. Michio Kaku, and The 'Amazing' James Randi – are proud to announce Dr. Cornel West's first ever Australian tour.
