In this opening Bannan Institute lecture, Cornel West offers a fresh perspective on the work of several revolutionary African American leaders of the 19th and 20th centuries: Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. Du Bois, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Ella Baker, Malcolm X, and Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Bemoaning the “deodoriz[ing]” of these radical figures,” West considers anew the impact of these men and women in their own eras and across the decades, reflecting on the intersections of faith and social justice within prophetic leadership.
