    Realizations: Call and Response

    Realizations: Call and Response

    Eric Dozier grew up in a tiny Tennessee town and got his education at Duke. But when it came time to make his contribution in the world, he was drawn back to the music traditions of his background. He now uses that music in performances and presentations, in which things like gospel and call-and-response music help bridge societal divides. Here he even manages a call and response on Zoom!

    Realizations: Callie Keeps the Music

    Realizations: Callie Keeps the Music

    In our series connected to our 2020 special issue on Realizations, physical therapist Callie Beasley talks about her belief that she had to give up her practice of music to take up her practice of physical therapy. It took a curmudgeonly client, a piano, and "The Sound of Music" for her to realize she didn't need to give up music at all.

    Realizations: Blake Tedder's Instant Satori

    In our series on realizations, Duke Forest communicator Blake Tedder tells us about the many realizations he experienced when he underwent the process of recovering from a major burn injury. That leads to a discussion of the realizations he experienced when he believed he was going to die in the plane crash that caused the burns. He uses the phrase "instant satori," and he's not wrong.

    Not Necessarily the End of the World

    Not Necessarily the End of the World

    A Religious Studies class at Duke University called "The End of the World: Apocalyptic Arguments from Antiquity to the Present Day" seemed rather well timed even before the onset of COVID-19. But in a time when many seemed to fear they were facing the end of the world, the class decided to write a manifesto expressing their feeling that it was not. This podcast tells the story of that manifesto, and the students read portions of it.

    Pivot Point Part III: Aftermath. The Allen Building Takeover at Duke, Fifty Years Later

    Pivot Point Part III: Aftermath. The Allen Building Takeover at Duke, Fifty Years Later

    This is part three of a three-part series. In February 1969, African American students at Duke seized the Allen Building, the university's main administration building. A daylong standoff ended with the students leaving the building at the same moment that police in riot gear stormed the building. Police subsequently engaged crowds of students in its main quad, using clubs and tear gas. The protest and its results has left a long shadow at Duke. In 2019 celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the takeover brought original protesters back on campus for panel discussions, storytelling, and reconnection with old friends and places. Using those discussions, interviews, and archival tape, Pivot Point tells the story of the occupation and its aftermath. This is part three of a three-part series.
