They've been a part of and have helped create to make room for riders like myself. For whom a book like how. The word is passed. Or the fact that i am now a staff writer at the atlantic myself.

"Pulitzer prize winning journalist. Nicole hannah jones will begin teaching at howard university this summer. She landed at the historically black university after her alma mater the university of north carolina at chapel hill denied her tenure. Unc later reversed. Its decision but hannah. Jones declined the offer in a conversation with our education. Reporter debbie trung. She described her vision for her work. At howard what can a journalism education at a historically black university offer that a journalism education at maybe a predominantly white institution may. Not what i'm hoping to do is to bolster journalism that is infused with accountability journalism. That i think are this moment requires in our democracy but also that brings in that historical context that is missing a lot of times from the journalism that we see and this of course will be centered in the tradition of the black press which has been really the the firewall democracy in that the black press has never been able to pretend to neutrality Black journalists have in understanding that our democracy is very fragile that our government will not necessarily always vindicate of the rights of marginalized people and that this is going to be a struggle to ensure that democracy holds so i think that type of context that urgency that contextual understanding of america is what you see amongst black journalists in general which you have long seen amongst the black press and what i hope to release strengthen through the center for journalism and democracy. Unfortunately it's often been the case with black institutions. They've had to try to do more with less. And i'm able to bring some significant resources to give howard and other journalism pro grounds the type of funding that they deserve so that the excellent faculty can do the work that they've long been doing without having to stretch resources to do it as much. Newsrooms historically have not always listened to and respected block journalists and other journalists of color at the same time. The industry is in financial upheaval and many jobs. Especially when you're starting out can be very low paying given those realities. How do you convince college students on the value of getting into journalism. I think none of us get into journalism because we expect that. It's going to make us rich. And i certainly am not going to convince college. Journalists that this is going to be the most lucrative profession I believe in being very candid. This is a challenging proficient in. It is one in a great deal of turmoil right now but i also think that it is one of the highest callings in our country particularly in a country where i think we are on the precipice of some very dangerous political situations so i think that the way that you convince students to go into journalism is really to talk about. What is the role journalism in a democracy. Why is it important that we have a news media that is reflective of our multiracial country. And that can actually produce the type of reporting that holds power accountable speaks for the vulnerable. That's why people get into this field. And i think that's what particularly draws black americans into the field Is the sense of mission. That journalism has to listen to our entire interview with nicole. Hannah jones visit w. a. m. u. Dot org thank you for joining us for. Consider this from npr. Listen again next time. And we'll make sense of the major stories happening in the washington region and elsewhere in your world.

"What we do is we provide resources or every node in these black women's careers but then also for allies because it's incredibly important for them to be a part of the solution to and what we're finding do the research that we do. Because as economists leading this organization measurement is critical for us. We are finding that when black women are exposed to careers an economics. They find it interesting and they want to explore it. More role models are absolutely critical to that and having young black woman economists who are on the undergraduate level graduate or if i was in the profession exposed to high school students is critical when it comes to graduate students giving them exposure in airtime is incredibly important so we have a research scholars program which we execute annually with breakings institution that allows graduate students to present their research widely and this past year. We've had about four hundred. People attend from all across the united states in the world to hear about the research that our scholars doing that exposure is really great for them as they prepare to go on the job market and then pitch for a job where they can work fulltime in really explore. These research interests when it comes to professionals. Citations are incredibly important. Currency in academia the way we support professionals is by getting their work out and normalizing what it looks like to be an economist who is non white and male at that at the sadie collective. We are getting the word out about the work. That black economists are doing so that it becomes more mainstream is an economist. You got out of school and you went into this field and you started going to a professional meeting or professional conference.

"W T O P. President Trump and Joe Biden continue battling to win over his many voters as possible before election Day. But There is word that many rank and file union members who have historically back Democrats or again still siding with Trump. I spoke more about the current trend on Skype with Politico's trade reporter Megan Casella. So we talked to a number of labor leaders, particularly many in the building trades and among the steel workers, the mine workers that we focused on staying states and found a number of these labor leaders who are on the ground there. Seeing that their members who supported Trump in the past have not wavered at all. But that support is just a strong as ever. The leaders themselves have really spent years, you know, say Saying that Trump has attacked the National Labor Relations Board that he has hurt the right to organize their hindered the right to organize and they're trying to point out different reasons why these workers should really be voting for their livelihood and further jobs and sticking with Joe Biden. But you know, the members themselves are as they were in 2016. They were sticking with jump then, and there's nothing that's changed their minds. These leaders. I really think there's nothing you can do to change. A trump supporters opinion. So what are some of the main reasons why the rank and file are sticking with Trump? There's a number of them so one you know, we heard from some union leaders who said that Trump really resonated with their members from the start with his sort of anti immigrant rhetoric that immigrants are coming to take your jobs and not really has resonated with them and have stuck with them for four or five years. Now that the president's been preaching that we also talk to some among the steel in the mine workers in particular who are worried about Joe Biden's position on climate and on fracking, they're worried that he's anti coal and that from of his policies Might take away their jobs as well. And so, you know, they're also just looking at some of the social issues. Some of them are focused on defending the police that they like, and they're worried that Joe Biden might want to defund the police. They're looking at some of that as well. And even as the union leaders themselves say, we try to stay out of the social aspect. We want folks just to vote on their jobs. They're having some difficulty making that argument as well. Could this proved to be a real edge for the president's in any battleground states? We don't know yet. We know that it looks like some of these unions are really 50, 50 neck and backer sometimes even more so, leaning towards Trump. But what we do know is that in 2016, it really did make a difference that Clinton still one union voters overall but by much less than Obama had in 08 and 16, and that just that gap was enough, possibly to have so long the election in Ah in some swing states, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. And so if that same dynamic holds, and if the's members vote the same way that they did in 2016, it could be enough to really hurt by him in some of those swing states. There's reasons for hope for Biden. A lot of the leaders did say he's definitely a more appealing candidate than Clinton to their members. But it remains to be seen how really the votes are going to shake out and weather. This alone could have a huge influence on how things go in November again, That's politicos trade reporter Megan Casella on Skype. 11 43 here on W GOP Norfolk State University is going to host the second debates between US Senator Mark Warner and his Republican challenger, Daniel gave the Virginian Pilot says This debate will happen on October 3rd at the historically black University.

University officials push back on US travel ban

"You this week president trump is expected to announce an expansion of his controversial travel ban that prohibits nearly all people from selected countries from traveling to or immigrating to the United States the original travel ban was one of Mr trump's first initiatives upon taking office in focus primarily on Muslim majority countries it took years of court challenges before it was finally up held this latest iteration is focused on a range of countries NPR has confirmed that the seven countries expected to be added to the band are Nigeria Sudan Tanzania Eritrea Kyrgyzstan Myanmar and Belarus indeed some of the countries listed are known for having high visa overstay rates but some of these countries also sends many students to American colleges and universities particularly historically black colleges and universities are H. B. C. use we want to get more perspective on this so we've called on David Wilson he is the president of Morgan state university that's a historically black university in Baltimore Maryland president Wilson thank you so much for joining us I'm a show this is really an honor to talk with you about this so first can I just get your thoughts on the initial travel ban and the reporting that this band is being expanded to the countries that I just named how do you react react to this well when the initial travel ban was proposed we had a quite a few international students of Morgan who were very long and concerned and so my first thought was to pool I international community together to let them know of course that we have one big umbrella at Morgan and everyone fits under that umbrella and so they were very very pleased to hear that but of course you know they were very concerned about what it meant for the continued state in the United States at Morgan we held a roughly ten percent of our nearly eight thousand students SO it Morgan who are international representing sixty countries and of that ten percent about twenty percent of those students are from Nigeria and we have had very very strong ties with the entire continent of Africa for decades not only Morgan but many H. B. C. use the Washington post wrote a feature about Morgan state a couple of months ago and it cited that of foreign students as as an important part of the university's continued stability and growth and I'll just quote here from the peace the peace that foreign students especially from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are a booming demographic H. B. C. use at Morgan seven hundred thirty eight international students were enrolled in the fall of twenty eighteen are from two hundred and eighty six in two thousand six and the reporter says that the students often pay full tuition a monetary boost for schools that often serve students from low income families relying on financial aid is that true is that many of your international students do pay full tuition that is true and this is been a conscious effort on our part to increase our brand on the international stage we have actually done that very fair well and we're bringing the world to market and a domestic students really appreciate the fact that we have all the different cultures on our campus international students feel very very welcome on the campus to fill that Morgan is a place where they belong and so when I heard the proposed ban that had Nigeria and it I understand that I had a senior administrative a team in Africa they just returned yesterday looking at how we could actually partner with a couple of existing African universities took a number two or three Morgan state to Greece there and so this was really devastating for us to hear and so I don't know who is really advising the administration on some of the policies and I don't know what the motives are but I just don't think this is really good for higher education in America in general and is definitely not good for H. B. C. use before you go I'm we've discussed the fact that many of these international students come with full funding whether it's individual whether it's through foundation support or funds within their countries they're interested in supporting their education is overseas but what benefit would you say it is to the United States to have these international students studying here it is fun of enormous importance to help the students when I campuses because first of all we send a belt with seven hundred fifty thousand or so students every year to study abroad that's a small fraction of all the students when I campuses and therefore you have no ninety five percent or so of all students in American colleges not being expose perhaps to the kind of cultures that exist around the world so when we are able to bring these international students from all walks of the world to our campuses it really in Abel's domestic students on many of whom I have never gone outside of the country to be in environments now with the understand different cultures the understand different histories of the world the engage in robust discussion and debate and everybody wins and when you cut that off I just fear of four which really will happen with regard to our students being in environments where they can go to the cafeteria and sit and at that table you know they have you know five countries represented this David Wilson he's president of Morgan state university that's in a strictly black university in Baltimore Maryland president Wilson thank you so much for talking to us today Michelle thank you for

"We heard from Allister named Kyle in Saint Louis who told us about his favorite genre bending artist's here's what Kyle had to say I think one of the most important RB artists and stuff to say if it's truly are and be able to pass and Frank ocean from the first album channel orange to is mostly Disley spawn it's that credible body of work it aggressively personal it's willing to experiment with sound and texture and quality I think it's the kind of direction that are in being kind of music a large will be moving to in the future the call thank you for sharing your thoughts with us professor what do you make of the Frank ocean's with with more and more rappers kind of crossing over into more traditionally are in B. territory I really love Frank ocean I absolutely love Daniel Caesar I think that they are keeping our real R. and B. music alive I'd like to say that historically there have always been genres and subgenres R. and B. music and teaching the R. and B. classes here at Berkeley you know we look at classic soul which is a re to Franklin we look at shock on a parliament Funkadelic which is funk we we look at Jill Scott which is neo soul it's all card be music so this is how all of these things called exit and so that is how a Frank ocean and eight Justin Timberlake can co exist and its and their singing RB music that's how her and the Tory Kelly and and the Jill Scott can co exist because you got genres and subgenres of RB music and we get back to something that was said about the lyrics there's a difference between writing the lyrics the actual lyrics themselves and the way that they are performed now the diction has a huge deal at a huge interest in huge part in performance and that comes to whether we actually understand what is being set now then we think about what is written okay is it all the quality lyrics or they not quality live in and how is the artist performing them if we go back and we look at Muddy Waters who says who's saying they call it stormy Monday one of the great blues artist and this was at the foreshadowing of of arm be music we we hear that it you know it's a lot of what he's singing is not understandable but if you listen to at a James singing though the same song you can understand every lyric that she's saying it so it also comes down to a point of performances well so then okay so professor so was it R. and B. B. because Muddy Waters wrote it that way or because edit James sang out around it keep on Walker road it okay book but did you become R. and B. when it was intelligible when added James saying it or one muddy water it was it was blues these are this is a pure twelve bar blues and this was this happened on the cusp of what we know now is R. and B. music so this is this is the precursor to what we heard in the forties and know what morphed into what happened in the fifty sixty seven and seventy cents so on but if it didn't become that because of the way that he performed it was just a style it had to do with what where he was from its like Memphis sold versus RB from Philly versus R. and B. from Detroit there are three different sounds yeah we get to see more of your suggestions of what you're listening to and what you love Venus wrote on our Facebook page I love Leon bridges he has that old school flair his concerts are like going back in time so good Tim wrote on our Facebook page are really long for the days of boys to men that's what I cut my romantic teeth on still love it to this day Kevin emailed I texted my daughter a college freshman about today's topic and she told me that they'd better mention gin may I a cop and Colin tweeted in may be nine email you can respond to Collins question Colin tweeted I'm an audio engineer in Knoxville and I was curious about what impact you think that the development of software synth and drum machines has had on our end beef for example if using sampled drum machines leads to a different musical style because of the lack of hardware limitations Lima I'm I don't well the use of Simpson and programmed drum machines came of came about well I'm sorry became more prevalent in the eighties which is what you hear a lot of in quiet storm music actually Jimmy jam and Terry Lewis utilized a lot and then LA and babyface did to an extent and then that kind of took us into the new Jack swing era when we were hearing more tempo and arm the music across the board I don't necessarily think that is responsible for where we are today I think that's more like Tom said about arm be kind of letting hip hop come play with them and then have pop just kind of taking over but I will say that it definitely did change the way she arm be was made because if you're looking at the seventy is going into the eighties it was fun and soul bands right and then in the eighties we have focused back on a solo artist again but we got that band feel from the scent from the drums from the different programming techniques because that was when our production our production elements and styles were elevating at quick pace so yeah it did affect the evolution of arm be but I don't think that's what's responsible for where we are right now it answers the question and I am a you mentioned new Jack swing that sis like a sub genre some people might not be familiar with defines army so new Jack swing is a subgenre of arm be that started in about nineteen eighty nine and ran until about had its high until about nineteen ninety four ninety five that took the elements of arm be the singing the lyricism the heart is but added more tenfold more drums eight await programming you know more sent eight only is as a drum machine that usually used in hip hop but that started being used in our in the in the late eighties actually Marvin Gaye was the first person to use are recorded music recorded music is RB artist but anyway and Italy drum programming and just basically tempo it was a higher BPM beats per minute then you usually expect from arm be music you it was danceable it was party are and be for lack of a better word in new Jack swing went to write and that was teddy Riley is largely accredited as like the godfather at the producer teddy Riley as large a credit like the godfather of new Jack swing even though elan baby face and Jimmy jam and Terry Lewis also had a hand in the formation of the sub genre and a new Jack swing took us to have pop soul which was Mary J. Blige and Joe to see artists who were singing over hip hop samples who kinda had a rap for and St swag to them and that took us into kind of where we ended up in the early aughts with army music that sounded that was chasing rap instead of rap that was complimenting Barbie several several of you've sent comments in about radio play and Tom we've mentioned this format the quiet storm this kind of a late night romantic slow temple highly passionate love song format dat format is still around but it's involved a lot it was highly successful when it dropped W. H. you are here in Washington DC the radio station is owned by Howard University which is a historically black university became very prominent for the quiet storm but that Sean was kind of evolved as Orin B. has evolved end as radio terrestrial way am FM radio has involved how do you see that evolution affecting the genre overall I the way I look at is I always think about urban AC radio urban adult contemporary with with that primarily used to be the quiet storm adult arm be where those are as to get played and now we're starting to see a lot of the labels just going there it gets a lot less reached in hip hop radio but you know labels are just sending artists are even though it might not fit that format just because it's a cheaper way to get there their music heard by the masses so we're seeing kind of a muddling of what that John Rick constitutes but for me the biggest point I'd like to make about radio is that if someone's listen to the radio and they don't hear the music they want to hear the music you you want to hear still out there if you grew up on the nineties the artist who made music in the nineties are still making music is just not getting the recent used to you just got to you know try to try to find it on your own an artist like a music soul child who I am a big fan of just put out a double album a few years ago and I didn't really get a lot of air play you know in in comparison ours like a tank who want more with the trendier sounds and is getting a lot of play so just because you're here what you're hearing on radio might not be for you what you like is probably still out there you just got to go and find it yourself I should know we do have a play list of current Orin be picked by our producers you can find that on our website the one A. dot org and since Tom mentioned tank we should play one quick track by tank this is cold when we Josh online where you I don't play recipe for I'm just stroke is good she didn't like tomorrow the new user that's tank with when we.
