  1. Episode #46: The Great Un-Equalizer? | The Lines Between Us

    Minority access to colleges and universities is growing. But according to a report released a few weeks ago by the Georgetown Public Policy Institute, that trend masks a growing form of inequality in higher education. The American postsecondary system, the report says, “is a dual system of racially separate and unequal institutions."

    The report found that since 1995, eight out of ten white enrollments have been at what they call selective colleges and universities, about seven out of ten black and Hispanic enrollments were at two- and four-year so-called “open access” schools.

    Today, we check in with report co-author Anthony Carnevale, as well as three people involved in higher education in our region. Tracey Durant is part of the Associated Black Charities advisory committee for higher education public policy. (Disclosure—ABC is one of this series’ many funders.) John Banks is an adjunct instructor and academic advisor at the Community College of Baltimore County. Joe Fisher is founder of First Generation College Bound.

    Here’s a link to the Georgetown report, Separate and Unequal: How Higher Education Reinforces the Intergenerational Reproduction of White Racial Privilege…

  2. History of the Black Panther Party: Huey Newton and the Price of Black Power in America (1994)

    Huey Percy Newton (February 17, 1942 — August 22, 1989) was an African-American political and urban activist who, along with Bobby Seale, co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966. About the book:

    Newton had a long series of confrontations with law enforcement, including several convictions, while he participated in political activism. He continued to pursue an education, eventually earning a Ph.D. in Social Science. Newton spent time in prison for manslaughter and was involved in a shooting that killed a police officer. In 1989 he was shot and killed in Oakland, California by a member of the Black Guerilla Family.

    There are many references to Huey Newton in popular music, including in the songs "Changes" by Tupac Shakur,[44] "Welcome to the Terrordome" by Public Enemy, "Queens Get the Money" by Nas, "Sunny Kim" by Andre Nickatina, "Just A Celebrity" by The Jacka, "Same Thing" by Flobots, "Dreams", "Gangbangin’ 101", "Murder" and "911 Is A Joke (Cop Killa)" by The Game, "You Can’t Murder Me" by Papoose, "Police State" by Dead Prez, "Propaganda" by Dead Prez "We Want Freedom" by Dead Prez, "Malcolm, Garvey, Huey" b…

    Jack Black on Musical Snobbery, Childlike Innocence, and the Roles He’s Yet to Play

    Jack Black always seems to be on the verge of breaking into song.

    Whether he’s a slacker substitute teacher in School of Rock, an earnest funeral director in Bernie, or a snobby record store clerk in High Fidelity, music has a way of seeping into his performances.

    Maybe that’s because Black’s portrayals often possess an unbridled joy that’s difficult to capture with spoken dialogue.

    Although he’s known for his comedic strengths and has often played the "shlubby loser", Black has showed that he’s capable of much more. For Peter Jackson’s King Kong, he played a 1930s filmmaker intent on creating an epic narrative, no matter how far into the heart of darkness he has to travel. In Noah Baumbach’s Margot at the Wedding, he was a disappointing groom prone to occasional bursts of anger.

    Most recently, he played the titular character in Richard Linklater’s Bernie, a film based on the true story of a kind, gentle mortician accused of murder in a small Texas town.

    It’s the subtlety of performances like these mixed with the intensity of a man who also headlines the rock band Tenacious D that truly make Black a unique performer.

    Guest host Susan Orlean gets to the bottom of Black’s career, from his early days performing one-man shows in his living room to working with some of the biggest names in show business.

    They’ll talk about some of his early childhood performances, dissecting musical tastes, a new HBO pilot, and why seeing him on Broadway wouldn’t be entirely out of the question.

    Bun B of UGK on Rhyming, Big Breaks and Mourning Pimp C, "The Yin to My Yang"

    Bun B was half of UGK and still is one of the South’s greatest hip-hop lyricists. Alongside partner Pimp C, he spent two decades rhyming and recording classic hip-hop and helped establish Texas as a force to be reckoned with in the national hip-hop scene. Pimp C died six years ago this month, but Bun has continued to record and release music as a solo artist. His newest album, Trill Og the Epilogue, was released in November.

    Jesse sat down with Bun B in 2009 to talk about underwriting a music career with street crime, rhyming with Jay-Z, and his reaction to Pimp C’s frequent arrests, setbacks, and untimely passing.
