The Outspoken Activist Cornel West Comes to Kennesaw State to Celebrate MLK

He will be the featured speaker at Kennesaw State University's Martin Luther King celebration.

New York Times bestselling author and social commentator Cornel West will be in Kennesaw this weekend.  Here in Southwest Atlanta, I have recently heard both love and hate attitudes towards Mr. West since his critical stance on President Obama, in which he said that the President should be doing more for the poor.

In Cornel West's defense, he has always maintained that he offers constructive criticism to the President and that he loves "Brother barack Obama."

Mr. West will headline a Sunday night forum at Kennesaw State University as part of the school's 2013 Martin Luther King Jr. celebration.

West, the man behind classics such as Race Matters, has championed issues such as poverty in America, joining journalist Tavis Smiley on a nationwide bus tour to bring attention to the issue.

He is scheduled to speak at 8 p.m. at the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center, which is located on Kennesaw State's campus, 1000 Chastain Rd.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
