On the last episode of Spartan Life Radio, we talked about the stupendous Black History Month (BMH) 2016 observance taking place at Norfolk State University. In this episode, we tracked down several faculty members who have created unique and interesting programming for this year's observance. Did you know that there's a connection between the famous Buffalo Soldiers of Virginia's history and the Philippines? We're going to talk to NSU's Dr. April T. Manalang, assistant professor in the Department of History and Interdisciplinary Studies, about her research into this "hidden" Virginia History and the program she's created for the Black History Month Celebration. Professor Anthony Stockard, director of the NSU Theatre Company, will discuss the encore performance of the award-winning play "The Brothers Size." The drama has won several awards and was recently presented at the Kennedy Center's American College Theatre Festival. "The Brothers Size" was also presented at last year's National Black Theatre Festival making it the most-awarded production in Norfolk State University history! And, last but certainly not least, Professor Carol Pretlow, NSU's resident political guru, who will round out our panel will discuss a BHM program involving students from the political science department. African American Perspectives on International Politics and Foreign Policy is a panel discussion on the topic from the student perspective.
Join us for what promises to be a spirited conversation.
Bob Nkosha is a celebrated Comedian, writer director and actor, he is probably best known for his alter ego character of Dorika Ndaifulia SC but to place the focus entirely on his alter ego would be to miss one the sharpest comedic minds working today. Nkosha is a master of creating characters and conceptual bits in the place of traditional joke-telling. An avid dancer he often incorporates dance into his act, what may seem interesting is his ability to create material that is actually inventive, daring and often brilliant comedy for all ages and status corporate or non corporate in society. Bob Nkosha was born and raised in Kitwe, Copperbelt province. He performed his first stand-up gig at Kitwe Little Theatre. He will be on tour of the United States starting in Chicago and he's our featured guest to share his life story, future of comedy in Zambia.
