College course on Jay- Z offered at Georgetown University

      Micheal Eric Dyson , a professor, author, radio host and television personality, has offered at Georgetown University this semester a popular  class dedicated to  Jay-Z   and his career. The course, "Sociology of Hip Hop: Jay-Z," may seem an unlikely offering at a Jesuit, majority-white school that counts former President  Bill Clinton  among its alumni.        But Dyson insists that his class confronts topics present in any sociology course: racial and gender identity, sexuality, capitalism and economic inequality.      The course has generated controversy as critics of Dyson believe that Sean Carter’s lyrics have no place in an educational institution like Georgetown.        "It just happens to have an interesting object of engagement in Jay-Z -- and what better way to meet people where they are?" Dyson said. "It's like Jesus talking to the woman at the well. You ask for a drink of water, then you get into some theological discussions."
