Native Washingtonian Rosalind Wiseman went to school with mean girls, then grew up to study them and the wider social dynamics of young women. She joins Kojo with former student Alexandra Petri to discuss the complexities of womanhood at different stages of life.
For 75 years between Georgetown University’s founding and Maryland’s abolition of slavery, the school owned and sold slaves. Its largest sale of 272 individuals resurfaced in 2015 after the school formed a working group to acknowledge its slave past. Since then, students have protested with sit-ins and hashtags. Now that the group has released its formal recommendations, Kojo gets reactions from students and faculty on the university’s decisions to make amends for its slave past.
