    I listened to this quite by coincidence. What an enlightened stretch my soul experienced this morning. So well articulated and thought provoking. It absolutely caused reflection before I stepped into my day. Thank you

    I tuned into my NPR station a bit late and missed the introduction. I thought I’d tuned in to a Saturday night church service, with a Black preacher saying more & more interesting and on-point things. By the end I had to know who this amazing preacher was — and it was Dr Cornell West!! I’d heard him speak about his book Race Matters soon after it came out, in his more traditionally academia talk & hairstyle. I was aware via TV interviews that Dr West had let his speaking cadence and his hair be more natural. This talk —which included so much about where we are as a Nation as well as human foibles as well as a call to Action— blew me away. Thank you for continuing to speak out and for living what you preach, Dr West!

    Dr. West is a treasure. His speech at the University of Montana, Missoula, which was aired tonight on KUNM, was wonderful. Thank you, AR and KUNM.

    I found this to be amazing and clear.

    An inspiring, insightful, thought-provoking, informative, factual presentation. His oratory is so compelling that one must strive to remain focused on the content of his talk.

    “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

    In the ’70s I enjoyed an undergraduate philosophy course in the Socratic Method; it was a gift that has borne benefits in the decades since.

    I’ve purchased the download to enable my 19-year-old Colgate U. sophomore and me to listen to it together.

    Though white, I nevertheless consider Professor West an exemplar of the ilk of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Barack Hussein Obama, whose speeches I’ve also made a point of sharing with my son.

    I’m grateful to Alternative Radio and the radio station hosts on which I depend – and to which I contribute.
