I Got My MBA from the Marcy Street Projects: Liberal Education between James Cone and Jay-Z

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Under the influence of narratives promulgated by the likes of Jay-Z, a distressing number of African Americans honestly seem to accept that all hustles are alike: that there is no distinction between selling drugs and going to business school. They seem, moreover, to accept that the modes of comportment that are appropriate in the one domain will serve as well in the other - they have, in other words, bought into an ensemble of appearance, temperament, lifestyle, and behaviors that will, at the very least, preclude their entrance into business school. Simply rearranging the clothing choices of undergraduates will not solve this problem, but it may provide a point of entry for engaging with some of the larger issues in play. James Cone put the point succinctly: “Of course, throwing a Molotov cocktail is not the sum total of our political discourse. But one must start somewhere.” “I Got My MBA from the Marcy Street Projects” will approach the Morehouse dress code as a way of reopening the conversation about what success looks like, and as an invitation to revitalize humanistic – as opposed to consumerist and corporatized – reflections on that question.
