Dr. Cornel West to speak at Jackson State Thursday, venue changes to AAC

Dr. Cornel West, the Princeton professor and civic intellectual, will soon make an appearance on the West side of Jackson. Dr. West will be the featured speaker at an event sponsored by Jackson State University’s Office of Student Life and Student Government Association.

The event takes place this Thursday, February 17, at 7:00 p.m. and is free to the public. So far, the response has been so great that JSU has moved the event from Rose E.
