Rinku Sen’s Speech

As some may know, The Applied Research Center (ARC) just had its anniversary event this past month in Oakland. They have just recently posted the footage of Renku Sen’s speech at the event and I am re-posting it here because I believe that her comments are both inspiring to those in the racial justice fight but also because they remind us academics (and I know I have many an academic lurker & contributor/commentors) that our call is not just to be the voice in the front of the classroom but also voices of change in the public world as public intellectuals. If you haven’t heard that call yet, have your ears checked, because this really is the Brave New World.
