Watch West! or listen to Ideas

Dr. Cornel West is a prominent and provocative democratic intellectual and civil rights activist that spoke on campus on May 8, 2015. He was the inaugural Axworthy Lecturer.   His lecture airs on CBC Radio One’s Ideas program on Tuesday, June 2nd at 9 pm, 89.3 FM.

UWinnipeg’s Riddell Hall and Eckhardt-Gramatte Halls were both packed to capacity. Check out the Axworthy Lecture Series Event Facebook page for some of the glowing testimonials about this memorable event. Event video can be found below.

In addition to reaching local stakeholders, the lecture was recorded by the CBC to be broadcast as an episode of the popular program, IDEAS. This national program reaches a weekly audience of over a million listeners. Stay tuned for details about the IDEAS broadcast!
