Minneapolis and Online – Westminster Town Hall Forum: Arc Toward Justice 2023

May 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT

Arc Toward Justice 2023 - Westminster Town Hall Forum with Cornel West and Ifeoma Ike

Join renowned philosopher and social critic Dr. Cornel West and social impact strategist and professional disruptor Ifeoma Ike in Minneapolis in a collaborative event with our partners Westminster Town Hall Forum and Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers. Minnesota Public Radio Host Angela Davis will serve as our moderator for the “ARC Toward Justice” event.

West has written 20 books and he is best known for the classics, Race Matters and Democracy Matters, and his memoir, Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud. Dr. West’s most recent book, Black Prophetic Fire, offers an unflinching look at nineteenth and twentieth-century African American leaders and their visionary legacies. He is the former Professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard University and Professor Emeritus at Princeton University.

Ike has co-engineered Just Leadership USA and Mass Bail Out NYC efforts as well as the formation of three congressional caucuses: Caucus on Black Men and Boys, Caucus on Black Women and Girls, and Caucus on Black Innovation. As a movement lawyer, Ike has been a policy advisor regarding human rights violations in Haiti, mistreatment of Afro-Columbians, and non-consent medical practices in Africa.

Following the thought-provoking conversation by our celebrated speakers Dr. West and Ms. Ike of telling the truth and bearing witness to love and justice, attendees will have an opportunity to continue the conversation with fellow attendees to create the beloved community and ensure that the moral arc of the universe continues to bend toward justice.
