DuBois. “How shall integrity face oppression? . . . What does honesty do in the face of deception? . . . What does decency do in the face of insult? . . . How does virtue meet brute force?”

Cornell West electrifies General Assembly in the 2015 Ware Lecture

West, a Beacon Press author known internationally for his oratorical flourish, challenged the audience to “sacrifice something precious in the name of integrity.” He took “timid” megachurch leaders, politicians, Wall Street figures, and others to task, suggesting that present times require “moral resolve.” To read more, click here.
