Cornel West spoke…

today at Saint Joe’s graduation. While it’s always fun to see an academic rock-star — is there a single historian that folks would line up to have their picture taken with — his speech was short and inspiring.

One quote I hadn’t heard before:

“justice is the public expression of love.”

Not sure I got it quite right… searching the interwebs, I come up with the following versions:

Justice is love expressing itself publicly.

Justice is what love looks like in public.

I think the second is the one from West’s written works.
