John H. Clarke & Cornel West debate / "Let's just deal with the reality and not deny what has and is going on"

This discussion between Dr. John Henrik Clarke and Dr. Cornel West -- moderated by Dr. Gregory Carr -- deserves its own post. It was referenced during this Jazz and Justice Radio interview on the Politics of Cultural Memory. Much thanks to quince3800 for following up and providing the link. The opening remarks officially commence at the four minute mark in the second video. In the first video, libations are poured and introductions are given.
