Hailed as one of the nation's most inspiring African Americans, Michael Eric Dyson has been credited with revitalizing the role of the public intellectual with the fervor of an ordained Baptist minister. Most recently, he can be heard on his hour-long radio show on NPR, "The Michael Eric Dyson Show."  His books provide some of the most significant commentary on modern social and intellectual thought, interwoven with a combination of cultural criticism, race theory, religion, philosophical reflection, and gender studies.  He is a popular University professor of sociology at Georgetown University that educates the general public on the significance of hip hop in understanding black culture and American culture.
