Princeton University professor Cornel West, philosopher, author, critic, civil-rights activist and actor (two “Matrix” movies), describes himself in his memoir as a “bluesman in the life of the mind and a jazzman in the world of ideas.” Randy Weston, internationally renowned pianist, composer and bandleader, has performed throughout the world. In an evening hosted by WQXR’s Terrance McKnight, West and Weston will take the audience through an improvised conversation that will touch on politics, race, the blues and jazz, and how their personal narratives are intertwined over time and space.
An autographed copy of Living and Loving Out Loud: A Memoir is included in the ticket price and will be distributed at the event. Randy West will be available to sign copies of The Autobiography of Randy Weston: African Rhythms, which will be on sale at the event. Cornel West, Randy Weston and Terrance McKnight will attend a VIP post-event reception.
