Tavis Smiley and Cornel West
Tavis Smiley and Cornel West join Kim McLarin for a provocative conversation on race, black leadership, and accountability. Journalist and activist Tavis Smiley has been described as a "cultural phenomenon" by the New York Times. He is the host of the nightly Tavis Smiley show on public television, and his weekly radio show can be heard on Public Radio International (PRI).
A renowned public intellectual, electrifying speaker, and currently the Class of 1943 University Professor at Princeton University, Cornel West has been called "an eloquent prophet with attitude" by Newsweek. Author of more than a dozen books, including the best-selling Race Matters, West's most recent work is Hope on a Tightrope.
