Does your brain have plans Friday night? Why not treat it to some much-needed nourishment? Come on, you know it deserves it — after a week of mind-numbing work, royal wedding news and Fast Five trailers, your gray matter could use some exercise.
Not to worry: We’ve got just what it needs. Cornel West — yes, that Cornel West, the Princeton prof, the cerebellum of the civil rights movement, the guy who calls everyone “brother,” even people who vehemently disagree with him — will be chatting with Carl Dix, conscientious objector founder of the American Revolutionary Communist Party. What are they gonna talk about? I’m guessing bundt cake recipes.
No, seriously: They’ll be discussing the state of education in America against the backdrop of police brutality and the prison system. The discussion begins at 7 PM at the DeNeve Plaza Lecture Auditorium at UCLA.
EDIT: Forgot to post the link. Here you go.
