When: Friday, December 2nd at 7pm
Cornel West, one of America’s most notable intellectuals, and Carl Dix, one of the founders of the Revolutionary Communist Party, will exchange in a dialogue on UC Berkeley’s campus as part of their nation-wide campus tour. Their talk entitled “In the Age of Obama — Police Terror; Incarceration; No Jobs; Mis-education: What Future for Our Youth” will cover the challenges faced by youth in today’s precarious times.
The powerful discussion will take place on one hand, in the spirit of Black liberation theology and on the other from the position of revolutionary communism. Both explore the need for vast methods of social change. The talk comes at a critical time in the midst of the world Occupy Movement, prison hunger strikes, outrage due to budget cuts to education, police brutality accounts around the country and so on.
The event is free and open to the public. An extensive Q & A session will follow the dialogue.
