 DSC6197 1(New Orleans, La.) -  Dillard University’s Philosophy #444 course to host an open lecture by Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell, Thursday, Sept. 25 from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Cook Center Theater on Dillard’s campus. The lecture is one of the opening events of the course taught by President Kimbrough and MC Lyte and is free and open to the public.

Uncle Luke will discuss the state of hip-hop, as it has changed so much. During the mid-1980s 2 Live Crew was considered controversial with lyrics that included discussions or descriptions of sexuality compared to lyrics today most discuss and/or describe sex.

Philosophy #444: “I Cram to Understand: Hip-hop, Sex, Gender and Ethical Behavior” seeks to look at this sexual revolution through the lens of the musical art form which is arguably is the most sexual- hip hop. This course provides an opportunity for substantive reflection and review of ethical principles and their relevance today in light of the creation and growth of the hip hop culture. Join in on the class discussions on Twitter #PHI444.

Uncle Luke is the second influential rapper to host a lecture on campus as apart of the philosophy course.  MC Lyte hosted a lecture on empowerment on Sept. 17 on Dillard’s campus.

Michelle Guobadia
(New Orleans) - The Office of President and the Pan Helenic Council of Dillard University are sponsoring a workshop featuring noted sorority/fraternity expert Michelle Guobadia on Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in the Georges Auditorium on Dillard’s campus.  Guobadia, who engages in frank talk about hazing, addresses the myths and misconceptions of how hazing adds value to a fraternity/sorority chapter.  The theme of the Greek 101 Workshop is “Hazing  Makes You a Better Greek, and Other Stupid Myths.”

According to her promotional flyer, Guobadia offers insight into Greek ritual, and says that tearing a person down or using ridicule and violence to make them feel they are part of a special community a life-long bond cannot build a life-long bond. The workshop is free and open to all college students and the general public. For more information call Hermine Jones at (504) 816-4837 or  go to www.dillard.edu or campuspeak.com/guobadia.
