B.E.T., PRINCETON UNIVERSITY, T.S.U. AND THE MATRIX TRILOGY – WHAT DO THEY ALL HAVE IN COMMON?

MEDIA CELEBRITIES AND INTELLECTUAL MINDS STOP BY THE INSITE!







Radio/television talk show host and former B.E.T. personality Tavis Smiley kicked off his youth Leadership Institute at Texas Southern University in Houston Friday evening. Along for the seminar were Dr. Cornell West and tenured Princeton professor Eddie Glaude. As you may remember Dr. West, one of the top intellectuals and educators in the country, also starred in The Matrix 2 &3. And Dr. Glaude was a student of West and now he heads the department his mentor is a professor in at Princeton. Now back to the event, dozens of young people from all over the country are participating in the institute that will last four days. The Insite was there along with Insite regular Misty Starks, FOX public affairs director Lisa Whitlock and a host of others…Enjoy the photos…Click to enlarge.

    Isiah,

    you really get around. I’m sure it’s exciting to meet so many people. Thank you for sharing this with us. Dr. West and Glaude are two of my favorites.

    I so admire Tavis Smiley and Dr. West. I would do anything for a one on one conversation with them.

    Tavis Smiley is such an amazing man! His heart is so big and he is the most down to earth person you can come in contact with, hang out with and then right when you feel like he is a brother from another mother …you realize that he is a celebrity in his own right!
    Dr. West’s intellect and love for his people is so strong as well!
    Both of these men do so much for black people and its future generation!

    Oh by the way, why isn’t Tavis married yet?! LOL……hmm….
