The course is taught  by professor, author, radio DJ and television host Michael Eric Dyson, he told the Associated Press, “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.” ummmmm, whatever you say dude.
