Sign up to join Dr. Cornel West's 2024 campaign for president!


Dr. Cornel West is a living embodiment of the power of an independent mind, forever reminding us that greatness is born of the courage to stand apart and speak one's truth. Even as a young child, he exhibited the remarkable qualities that would define his life's journey and the path to the presidency. Throughout his life, he has fearlessly questioned the status quo, challenged the prevailing narratives, and championed the causes of justice and equality. His unwavering commitment to independent thought and his unapologetic pursuit of truth have made him a revered figure, inspiring others to follow their path, think critically, and never back down from the pursuit of a more just and enlightened world. 

Dr. Melina Abdullah joined Dr. Cornel West in a historic announcement on The Tavis Smiley Show on April 10, as he introduced her as his choice for Vice President in the 2024 presidential election. This marked a significant milestone in the campaign's commitment to fighting for a society and world based on justice, equality, and the empowerment of poor and working class people of all colors.

"At this historic and pivotal moment, it is my profound honor to stand alongside my dear sister, Dr. Melina Abdullah, a fierce and tireless advocate for truth, justice, and transformative change,” Dr. West proudly announced. “Sister Melina’s incredible courage, keen intellect, and deep vision have greatly served the cause of liberation in education, worker rights, and both racial and gender justice. Her unique Black analysis and witness helps us confront our crumbling era of empire, white supremacy, and patriarchy. I look forward to working with her as we strengthen our commitment in our campaign for truth, justice and love!"
