Cornel West at Philander

Posted By on Wed, Sep 13, 2006 at 10:16 AM

Walter Kimbrough, president of Philander Smith College, has lined up another strong program for his Bless The Mic: A Hip-Hop President's Lecture Series.

The second-year program begins Friday at 7 p.m. at the M.L. Harris Auditorium with Cornel West, a Princeton professor famed for his writing, teaching and speaking on racial issues.  His major bestseller, Race Matters, analyzed  racism in American democracy.

Tickets are free, but seating is first come, first served. Doors open at 6 p.m. and Kimbrough expects a crowd big enough to require closed circuit broadcast for overflow in the neighboring Wesley United Methodist Church.
