Sweet Tea Ethics: Ed Garnes Anthony David Talk President Obama

Submitted by on May 6, 2011 – 8:28 pmNo Comment |

When singer Anthony David heard that Spelman adjunct professor Edward Garnes Jr. was using his songs as part of his public speaking curriculum, he decided to see the students in action for himself. David, whose popularity took a major jump when President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama noted him as one of their favorite singers, visited a joint session of Spelman’s public speaking classes on April 27. According to Garnes, the students were assigned to use his song, “God said,” as a basis for preparing an informative, persuasive or entertaining speech. This semester the public speaking classes have also featured music A&R executive Amir Windom, and spoken word artists Khia Stone and Chezon Jackson. — Source: Inside Spelman
