The newly named Here Are All The Black People will feature keynote speaker Cornel West. Interesting choice. The man has certainly spoken out on issues involving diversity and discrimination. Plus, his academic background may make him comfortable communicating to fresh college graduates and younger audiences. Yet wouldn’t the attendees prefer Kanye West versus Cornel West? After all, Here Are All The Black People appeared to be shying away from the political and focusing more on the professional. West (Cornel, not Kanye) recently called Rev. Al Sharpton “the bonafide house negro of the @BarackObama plantation” on Twitter (in 2009, incidentally, Sharpton celebrated the NAACP’s 100th anniversary with the equality champions at Ogilvy). So if you’re going to expose wannabe advertising executives to a fiery guy like West, why not include, say, Sanford Moore too?
