I'm down. I already own the course material, might as well roll with this. It's a really good book, after all.

Slow down-- you'd also have to pick up Adam Bradley's Book of Rhymes​, and Zack O'Malley Greenburg's Empire State of Mind.
Anyway, I'd really like to see the syllabus of this.

That seems reasonable, I've had both of those books recommended to me previously. This'll be fun. Any future classmates hanging out here?

Haha. I actually thought of applying to GU a year or so ago. Shoulda done that, but I'm not complaining. My school works.

I love those kind of courses. Hopefully my school offers something neat.
I know you can get a degree in Urban Cultures at my school (which is the fancy name for black, intercity culture).

Yes, that's generally how the word "urban" is used in such contexts...

Urban cultures could mean how people act in different urban centres internationally.

Also, that was really fast.
