Cornel West at Pace Law School

Pace Law School was honored to have Cornel West, Class of 1943 University Professor at Princeton University’s Center for African American Studies, deliver the annual Dyson Lecture on April 16. Dr. West spoke to a packed house in the Moot Court Room on the Age of Obama. He was insightful, provocative, and inspirational. The video is available here.

Pace Law Professors David Dorfman and Randolph McLaughlin taught a seminar on the work of Dr. West as a champion of social justice to seventeen Pace Law students this semester. They were in the audience, as were many Pace Law students, faculty, and staff along with members of the public.

What struck me most about Dr. West? Watching him talk to the people who approached him before and after his lecture–he gave his full attention to each person, even if it was just for a short conversation.
