Cornel West Matters

Book Signing at Mansa Kunda

November 16th at 4 p.m.

The book, Cornel West Matters, is a review of the titular philosopher’s seminal texts by Mahamadou Lamine Sagna, who has long been interested in the way the West analyses politics, democracy, religion, and race and their intersections in America. It is also an analysis of the way the West brings religion and music – particularly blues and jazz – into philosophy.

Currently teaching at the American University of Nigeria, and serving as Associate Researcher at Paris VII University’s Laboratory of Social and Political Change (LSCP), Dr. Mahamadou Lamine Sagna taught for more than a decade in the United States, including at Princeton University. His works focus on poverty and globalization. The new book can be accessed here:
