In this amazing presentation Dr. West links the "Black Prophetic Justice" movement with the emerging restorative justice movement. Both call on people to see injustice in all its manifestations and promote a more just, equitable, and loving society. Both focus on recognizing, confronting and repairing harms of injustice at all levels of society - personal, social, economic and political. As Dr. West notes, "Justice is what love looks like in public."

If you were there, you can relive the speech. If you were not, you can listen for the first time.
