Speakers Reign In April

Yale University law professor Stephen Carter gave the annual Earhart-Cornell Lecture

In one April day on campus, King Chapel audiences heard from Ernestine Bradley on German literature’s denial of the Holocaust and then from Cornel West on the topic “Race Matters.” It was an appropriate double billing: Bradley, a professor of German and comparative literature and native of Germany, knows West, Harvard professor of Afro-American studies and philosophy of religion, from his days as an adviser to her husband, former presidential candidate Bill Bradley. West was the keynote speaker for the 2nd Annual Conference on White Privilege, which drew more than 425 participants from around the Midwest.

Later in the month, Yale law professor and author Stephen Carter spoke on religion and public policy for the third annual Earhart-Cornell Lecture, followed by formal responses to the lecture from politics professor Craig Allin and history professor William Carroll. Mary Nelson, an activist who founded a faith-based corporation to revive Chicago’s West Side, talked about making a difference in the community for the annual Small-Thomas Lecture.
