In one of my classes at UNCA I had a professor from Tuskegee, Alabama. On the first day of class, before she knew I was from Alabama, she said, "I bet no one can tell me anything about Tuskegee." My hand, of course, went up. I proceeded to tell her a few things! I shared with the class about Dr. Booker T. Washington and his contribution to Tuskegee Institute, and I pointed out that the 70s band, The Commodores, were students there. Lionel Richie, as with Michael Jackson, emerged from a dynamic, successful group to become a solo icon of the eighties.
Despite my trivia success that day in class, ironically, the only B I have received in nine classes came at the hands of this very professor! I have had As in all others.
