Ep 8 - Eve Ewing

How does a Strong Young Voice from the city of Chicago reshape the culture of spaces and institutions across the country? Eve Ewing is a teacher, writer, artist, research scholar, and BreakBeat Poet whose voice has taken her into middle school classrooms, through Ivy League lecture halls, onto stages, and to the alternative learning spaces across the country. Currently working on her doctorate from the Harvard School of Education, where she co-chairs the Harvard Educational Review, Eve returns to her old stomping grounds at University of Chicago, where she went for undergrad, and discusses her experiences as a teacher and scholar, as well as the current hunger strike to save Dyett High School in Washington Park.

Read and Listen to Eve's Piece "Requiem for Fifth Period and the things that went on then"
