This year marks the 20th anniversary of a remarkable year in music: In 1993, more than a dozen rap artists released albums that helped change the sound of America. Among them was Tupac Shakur, who at 21 was on the cusp of superstardom. Just a few years later, he would be dead. (This piece initially aired July 19, 2013, on Morning Edition).
Kojo chats with Freeman Hrabowski, the president of University of Maryland, Baltimore County, about the future of higher education - and what he's doing to steer African-American students into science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
