Here is a link to the interview of Cornel West that we watched a few minutes from today.

There was a question in the 2:30 class about what Cornel West meant when he referenced the blues.  This is an example of blues music, by one of my favorite singers, Bessie Smith, “After You’ve Gone”.  Blues music evolved over time–a slightly later musician was Muddy Waters.  Here’s a recording of his “I can’t be satisfied”  And finally, here is an article by Lewis R. Gordon on the intersections between philosophy and the blues.
