In this week's episode of WBOI Presents, we feature Dr. Roland Fryer, Harvard economist and the youngest African-American to receive tenure at Harvard. He is a prolific writer about education, children, and teachers. He shared some of his ideas in a speech to the Economic Club of Indiana last spring.
You can hear WBOI Presents every Wednesday night at 7 p.m., and Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m.
In late August, 89.1 WBOI was honored to play host to NPR correspondent Kelly McEvers, who gave a lecture at the Manchester University College of Pharmacy.
McEvers was a foreign correspondent for many years, reporting from the likes of Cambodia, Indonesia, and most recently, the Middle East. After being stationed in Iraq, she was sent to cover the Arab Spring, as citizens across the region attempted to topple dictators who had long held power in their respective countries.
A group of state legislators from around the United States met June 12th and 13th at the Indiana Statehouse to discuss an idea that's never been tested: a convention of the states aimed at amending the U.S. Constitution.
