C-SPAN Broadcast of Carl Dix—Cornel West Dialogue at UC Berkeley
Between now and the end of the year, C-SPAN will be broadcasting the entire December 2 dialogue between Carl Dix and Cornel West at UC Berkeley—"In the Age of Obama... Police Terror, Incarceration, No Jobs, Mis-Education: What Future for Our Youth?" Thousands turned out for this extraordinary evening. One student called it "incredibly powerful." A UC administrator said it was "Fantastic, the best event ever at UCB. It was well-timed with what's happened, it was intellectually challenging, emotionally touched people and relevant." (See "The Cornel West–Carl Dix Dialogue at UC Berkeley: Thousands Turn Out For Unprecedented, Transformative Evening")
It's urgent that many, many more people be able to see this breakthrough event. Because the broadcast schedule is not yet set, and may appear very shortly before the Dialogue is aired, readers should stay closely tuned to C-SPAN's website so that you can let others know, and organize viewings in homes, classrooms, or at Revolution Books if possible.
