Excerpt: The relationship between truth, democracy and freedom of expression will be explored in the first event of the 2021 Peter ’69 and Marilyn ’69 Coors Conversation Series.

The Sept. 9 forum will feature Robert P. George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University; and Cornel West, the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Chair at Union Theological Seminary.

The series, which launched in fall 2019, brings together speakers with diverse political viewpoints and provides the Ithaca campus community with a forum for intellectual discourse on difficult yet timely issues.
