WILKINS: U.Va. should institutionalize programming on its oppressive past

(01/14/19 4:50pm)

The University recently began construction of the Memorial to Enslaved Laborers, a monument near Brooks Hall that will recognize the nearly 5,000 enslaved laborers who first constructed the early academical village. The memorial will also serve as a pedagogical tool, allowing people to gather and reflect on the University’s oppressive history. Building on these efforts to grapple with its past, the University should educate its student more fully about its legacy of oppression by developing a module on its history of racism and require all incoming first-years to take it.

Earl Sweatshirt comes out of his shell completely with ‘Some Rap Songs’

(01/15/19 3:53am)

In “Nowhere2go,” a pre-released single off of Earl Sweatshirt’s newest record, the rapper says “tryna refine this s—t, I redefined myself / First I had to find it.” Between a long battle with depression and anxiety, as well as the death of his father, uncle and close friend and collaborator Mac Miller, the past three years have been particularly hard for Thebe Kgositsile, the 24-year-old artist who goes by the name Earl Sweatshirt. Amidst all the personal struggles Earl had gone through between the release of his critically-acclaimed album “I Don’t Like S—t, I Don’t Go Outside,” and late 2018, he still found the time to work on his music. In “Some Rap Songs,” the long-awaited album which dropped Nov. 30, Earl has managed to distinctly redefine his sound. This shift charts a transformation from the provocative lyrics and simple production of his debut mixtape “Earl” — impressively released when he was just 16 years old — to the experimental production and emotional lyrics of his return to music with his newest release.

However, after previous recessions, colleges eventually regained the lost money — that did not happen this time around.
