THE TIGHT ROPE
“The Tight Rope” is an intellectually riveting audio-visual podcast featuring co-hosts Dr. Cornel West and professor Tricia Rose. Dr. West often famously remarks, “I’m a Bluesman in the life of the mind, and a jazzman in the world of ideas.” It is in this spirit of navigating the balance between hope and uncertainty in order to live a present, improvisational, and joyful life that we invite you to join Dr. West and professor Rose on “The Tight Rope.” Dr. Cornel West is Professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard University. Professor Tricia Rose is director of the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown University.
In unfiltered conversations with their esteemed guests, the co-hosts provide context, feedback, and guidance, helping us to adjust our moral compasses and find equilibrium in this tumultuous world. This podcast highlights the professors’ combined expertise to encourage critical thinking, self-reflection, and human connection through joy and laughter as we find our footing on “The Tight Rope.”
