Philosopher and educator Dr. Cornel West was in the red chair to talk about his career, politics and humanity.
West also explained the message he tries to convey in all his talks.
"It's the same thing," said West. "The issue of integrity, decency, honesty, virtue, how to engage in quality service. I'm a Christian so it's to the least, the widow, the stranger, the elderly, poor, working people, gay brothers, lesbian sisters, and I always begin on the chocolate side of town.
"I begin with black folk and brown folk and red folk, not because I don't love vanilla brothers and sisters, but I start with mom and dad because I am who I am."
