Cornel West - “My Ridiculous Situation at Harvard”

February 23, 2021

In a special edition of The Tight Rope, Dr. Cornel West speaks freely about his “ridiculous situation at Harvard” with respect to his being denied tenure at the institution. Join Dr. West and Professor Tricia Rose for a conversation as they reveal some of the possible underlying reasons for the rejection and as they dredge up the bedrock systemic issues at play in higher education. The Tight Rope just got a lot tighter! For additional insight into this matter of critical importance, check out the interview in The Chronicle of Higher Education with Max Alvarez, Editor-in-Chief of The Real News Network
