Dr. D’Weston Haywood is a visual artist, poet, emcee, and historian of the African American experience, convinced that he should make his training, talents, and passions a resource for others. Haywood was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, and attended the historically black North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina. While there, Haywood cultivated a talent for poetry and gained leadership experience as a student activist. He frequented “open mics,” won poetry slams, as well as served as the president of several student organizations, including the campus chapter of the NAACP and Student Government President. In 2005, he graduated summa cum laude with dual degrees in History and Political Science. After co-founding and leading an academic enhancement program for “at risk” young Black men, conducting research on the underground railroad for the Ohio Historical Society, and interning for then US Senator Barack Obama in Chicago, he decided to pursue a PhD. In 2013, Haywood completed his PhD in History at Northwestern University. His research centers on twentieth-century African American history, particularly, Black protest, Black cultural politics, and Black masculinity. Haywood is finishing his first book, “Let Us Make Men: Black Newspapers and a Manly Vision of Racial Advancement,” to be published by The University of North Carolina Press. Haywood spent 2014-2015 conducting research for the book as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Race and Gender History at Rutgers University. Dr. Haywood is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where he couples his research and teaching with his diverse interests and artistic work.
Summa, by definition, is the cohesion of distinct bases of knowledge into a comprehensive whole. When Jake O'Neal and Max Grossman formed their indie rock duo, the moniker perfectly embodied their fusion of style and talent. Based out of Boulder, Jake recently graduated summa cum laude from the University of Colorado with a degree in Electrical Engineering. But when he beat out 87 other vocalists to place 2nd in "CU Idol," he decided to turn his love of music into his full-time focus. Looking to diversify his solo act, Jake joined up with drummer, bassist, and producer Max Grossman in the fall of 2012. In their search for a fitting name, Jake decided to fashion his past success (summa cum laude) into his fresh endeavor (Summa). In May 2013, Summa added prodigal 16-year-old Miles Bragg to their roster as a live bassist, rounding out their power trio.With hints of Kings of Leon, Muse, and Radiohead, Summa has wielded the summary of its respective parts to produce a catalogue of well- crafted indie rock songs. Known for their intimate lyrics, catchy hooks, gripping stage presence, and Jake’s vocal versatility.
