Children First Team hosts evening with Dr. Cornel West (photos)

This past Thursday, the Children First Team’s dinner at Spain Inn was a huge success. Well over one hundred people left inspired by the words of Dr. Cornel West, the night’s guest of honor. We are extremely grateful to Dr. West for having taken a night of his grueling schedule surrounding his new book release to volunteer for a good cause, and good people here in Plainfield.

Here’s a look at the evening. Election time is a busy time, so I haven’t yet been able to add all the names. They’ll soon come

A special thanks to Elliott Simmons for taking these wonderful photos.

  1. Nice. Sorry I couldn’t attend–looks like it was a fantastic evening. I have heard Dr. West speak–he is a warm individual–even when I disagree with some of his assessments–lol. Good luck on Tuesday.
