President Ronald Mason, who originally hails from New Orleans, Louisiana, came to Washington DC to be the current president of my university, University of the District of Columbia in 2015. Besides his decades of experience as an educational leader, he also came to D.C. with a gift for spoken word, a gift that puts him in that space between poetic form, song, and rap.  As I am also a poet and short story writer, as well as a literature professor, it occurred to me we have not had a chance to hear more about Mason's story and work as a spoken word artist and poet. Tonight's show will walk us through that journey as At the Edge returns after five years with a new set of podcasts called Thinking Culture. Join us and call in for a special conversation about language,
