Segment A: The Politics of Hip-Hop/Segment B: Academic Integrity

Segment A: The Politics of Hip-Hop
Virginia Wesleyan professor Dr. Murrell Brooks began researching his current curriculum over two decades ago, but he might not have realized it at the time.  In 1980's L.A., Murrell was a founding member of hip-hop group Double Trouble. He's taken those experiences and applied them to his "Politics of Hip-Hop" course.  He joins Cathy Lewis to share how he's using the genre's trajectory as the road map for teaching the societal circumstances that have shaped the art form since the 60s.

Scheduled Guest:


Dr. Murrell Brooks - Assistant Professor of Political Science, Virginia Wesleyan College

Segment B: Academic Integrity
Earlier this month, The University of Virginia's student body approved sweeping changes to the institution's honor system, one of the oldest in America.  HearSay host Cathy Lewis discusses the nature of the pending changes with the chair of UVA's Honor Committee and considers the greater implication for academia those changes pose with Old Dominion University's Director of Student Conduct.

Today on HearSay, Cathy Lewis begins a series of conversations with the presidents of our region's community colleges.  As the cost of college attendance continues to rise, and the job market remains uncertain, two-year colleges are an increasingly valuable resource for students just out of high school or boomers looking to jump-start an encore career.  Join us for a look at how the Virginia Community College System is preparing our region's students for a brighter future.
