I recall back in March of 2005 that I was traveling to Tampa, Florida for a lecture. On the leg of the flight from Philadelphia to Tampa, I happen to notice that Cornel West was on the same flight, also scheduled to deliver a talk in the Tampa Bay area. I had the opportunity to chat with Dr. West briefly at the baggage claim. I have been particularly inspired by Cornel West's desire to detail the oppression of the African American community as well as to promote unity. In addition, I am aware that Cornel West is involved in the democratic socialist movement and fervently speaks out on injustice, promotes equality and diversity, and seeks an end to class and racial divisions. I share a common background with Cornel West in that we both have been involved in the academic study of religion but also share a common zeal for social activism. I hope that his message continues to be heard.
