Syracuse is extremely fertile ground for poets, writers and story-tellers. Here is a sound clip from a reading done by Jackie Warren-Moore (who we call our poet laureate) during the Apartheid & Identity event in Downtown Syracuse last week. Her tale illustrates that activism by women and social justice also run deep in our roots.
To find out how this story from her childhood ends, check her out during a public reading, or purchase a copy of her work.
Warren-Moore gave the reading along with Georgia Popoff and Vanessa Johnson.

If you enjoyed the film “Selma,” which paints an intimate portrait of the coalitions and strategies of the Civil Rights Movement, we suggest you move next to “Death of a King” by Tavis Smiley.

Smiley is pictured here in Washington, DC in 2005.
Veteran sports journalist Sean McDonough has covered everything from the Olympics and The Masters to the World Series. On Friday, he advised SU students to get as much practical experience as they could on the Hill and early in their careers. And although he graduated 30 years ago, he still finds himself rooting for SU when they are televised (but not when he’s doing play-by of course).
McDonough called today’s SU v. Miami game with Kara Lawson.
At times like this we need to have compassion, but we also need perspective. We enjoyed this comment by media personality George Kilpatrick, as well as his commentary today on Power620.
