Meredith Faculty Distinguished Lecture Explores Shakespeare’s Strong Women

Garry Walton, English professor and former dean of the School of Arts and Humanities, brought his Shakespeare background and Meredith’s emphasis on strong women together in his lecture. He opened with “What would someone in Shakespeare’s lifetime have meant by the notion of a strong woman and where would he have looked to find her?” He focused on women’s roles in Shakespeare’s comedies who “stand with their sisters, stand up to power and stand firm for forgiveness.”
Part of the lecture also included Shakespearean scenes and speeches by Meredith students and alumnae. Those students are Elaina Mittleman, Rebecca Daw Blum, Kacey Reynolds Schedler, Seth Blum and Matt Schedler.

Monday Wednesday Friday – 5:30 & 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.; Tuesday Thursday – 2:30 & 8:30 p.m. Saturday-Sunday – 1:30 & 11 a.m. & 5:30 p.m.

NCSU’s First African-American Graduate

NC State’s first African-American graduate, an electrical engineering major, was an important figure on campus at the dawn of the Civil Rights Movement.
Until 1960, when Irwin Holmes walked out of NC State with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, the university had never had an African-American graduate. He endured much during his time at NC State – a professor who gave him lousy grades for good work, cheap hits on the intramural football field, countless looks and behind-his-back whispers – but nevertheless he looks back on those years as a mostly positive experience.

Listen to the theme that runs through many of his stories. For every difficult incident, there is another one in which his fellow students stuck up for him.
“In almost every case, if the guy on your side knew you, race was not an issue,” Holmes said. “And that’s true in real life. When you have a real friend, you forget race.”
Holmes grew up in Durham, NC, at a time when segregation was a way of life in the South. He was a top high-school student and athlete, starring in several varsity sports and graduating third in his class

View his talk at these times on Channel 18:

Monday Wednesday Friday – 1:30 p.m; Tuesday Thursday – 1:04 & 7:03 p.m.; *Saturday-Sunday – 2:30 & 9 p.m.

Orage Quarles III

Saint Augustine’s students interview former N&O Publisher

Saint Augustine’s student leaders interviewed Orage Quarles III about post-election analysis from the perspective of a major newspaper executive. Quarles, who during 16 years as president and publisher of The News & Observer steered the newspaper through tumultuous times and led efforts to diversify its business, recently retired.
Under his leadership, The N&O doubled its roster of free community newspapers, launched Walter Magazine, and expanded its online presence. At the same time, the paper was hurt by the same economic forces that have diminished advertising revenue and triggered major reductions in personnel – including reporting staffs – at newspapers nationwide.

Quarles — Monday-Wednesday-Friday* – 2:30 & 4:30 a.m. & 4 p.m.Tuesday Thursday – 2:30 & 4:30 a.m. & 5:30 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday – 6 p.m.
