Dr Cornel West & Douglas Murray are armed with knowledge and ready to tour Australia

June 15, 2018 Events / Whats On No Comments Email Email

This August, Think Inc., the team behind the Australian tours of Dr Neil deGrasse Tyson, Dr Jane Goodall, Sam Harris and Dr Richard Dawkins are excited to bring audiences in Australia two scholarly adepts of liberation and criticism of multiculturalism: Dr Cornel West, and Douglas Murray, on stage and in conversation for Polarised.

The two heavyweight intellectuals will tackle such topics as free speech, foreign policy, race issues, equality and much more.

A renowned philosopher, social critic and political activist, Dr Cornel West has long been an avid supporter of African American liberation groups, whilst being a vocal critic of the Obama administration. Influenced at an early age by the Black Panther Party and the militancy of Malcolm X, West has kept alive the passion and legacy of both Malcolm X and Dr Martin Luther King Jr. since the 1980s.

Author of acclaimed works such as 1994’s Race Matters and Democracy Matters, West continues to focus heavily on the roles that race play in society today. The son of a Baptist minister, a radical democrat and a democratic socialist, West is an outspoken voice in American leftist politics, and is currently the Professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard University. Even with his podium cemented under the politics spotlight, West has also appeared on the silver screen in The Matrix Sequels as Councillor West, and has released hip-hop albums featuring Andre3000 and Prince.

Taking a seat beside Dr Cornel West is acclaimed British author, journalist and political commentator, Douglas Murray. In 2017, Murray released his highly praised book ‘The Strange Death of Europe’, focusing on firsthand accounts and criticisms of mass Islamic immigration and problems of multiculturalism in the EU. Standing out as one of Britain’s go-to critics on Islam, Murray is also an expert on immigration, free speech and gay rights. A seasoned regular on debate panels, talkback radio shows and television forums, Murray will be bringing his neoconservative expertise to Australia for the first time.

This August, join Dr Cornel West & Douglas Murray for Polarised, a night of indubitable converse, between two erudite titans – as they tackle the tough topics most would choose to sidestep.
