You are here. You are at the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. For the past four years, you have been walking the streets of Greenwich Village and writing the story of your college life. And for all the time you have spent at NYU, the word “student” does not even begin to encompass... Read more »

In the syllabus for Shelley Rice’s Toward a Critical Vocabulary, a cross-listed Art History and Photography seminar offered every fall semester, a five-paragraph description is given but barely scratches the surface of what the course covers.

I’m from Mississippi, the blue-eyed black bastard of America’s affair with slavery. Ranking first where you want to be last. Ranking last where you want to be first.
