In the aftermath of his arrest protesting the killing of Michael Brown, a young                         black man shot to death by a white police officer, Cornel West sits down for a     conversation with Callie Crossley about his new book Black Prophetic Fire, an   examination of the lives of historic African American icons and how their courage                 to speak truth to power still resonates with contemporary activism from the events in Ferguson, MO to taking a stand against President Obama.
