City Students Talk About Race on Local Radio

Journalism and Black Studies students from CCNY joined 1010 WINS radio personality Larry Mullins for a provocative discussion about race in honor of Black History Month. Journalism minor Hash Sesay covered the event; listen to the full conversation here.


A group of college students engaged in a riveting discussion on race relations this past Friday at CBS New York Studios as part of an event hosted by 1010WINS radio station.

The event, appropriately named Race 101: What Young People Think About Race Relations, brought together an array of students from different backgrounds eager to give their perspectives on how they deal with the issue of race on a day to day basis.

Larry Mullins hosted the panel alongside guest speaker Dr. Calvin Butts, and they did not shy away from introducing difficult topics. The students rose to the occasion, articulating their thoughts on more complicated issues such institutionalized racism, class discrimination, racial privilege, among other components of society that impede marginalized groups.

The students looked comfortable as they easily voiced their concerns and ideas with one another. It is evident they reap the benefits from attending CUNY and SUNY, systems which boast the most diverse learning environments in the world. “You dont really pay attention to [race],” says Shanique Jones, a pre-law student at The City College of New York. “We pretty much get along with everyone,” Jones continued.

The attitude of the students is a testament to what the struggles of previous generations have accomplished throughout American history, but the group on stage is not representative of the wider America. Though major strides in American race relations have been made, the students believe it is their duty to continue this tradition of progress in order to ensure a society that all of its citizens can benefit. “It doesn’t matter who you sit with, we are all human beings at the end of the day,” says Iqra Hussain, a business major at CUNY Kingsboro. “I don’t think race exist.” Hussain concluded.

The panel touched on how the false construct of race has historically divided people, but ironically in order to move forward from this division we must be willing to have open discussions about race. As recent graduate of City College Marie Brewer stated, “We have to be willing to talk about uncomfortable things, and we have to be willing to do it without getting upset.”

Don’t exhale…instead now should be your opportunity to seek out an internship. We live, work and study in the media capital of the universe, so opportunities abound. And CCNY students, who aren’t limited to summer internships, have secured positions in the spring and fall at ABC, CBS, NY1, CNN, Sports Illustrated, Hearst Magazines, Sirius Radio, Vibe and many other prominent media outlets. (FYI: Any unpaid intern can receive academic credit; Professor Appelbaum can put that in place once you’ve been hired for an internship.)

Look at this listing from NY1; jump on it! A number of students who have interned at NY1 have been hired later — and have moved on to companies like ABC and CNN. For more information and resources about internships, click here.

NY1: all 2016 Internships


On September 8, 1992, a new form of media – NY1 News – was launched. NY1 is a 24-hour news channel, serving New York City’s five boroughs, parts of Westchester and Hudson Valley.  Available exclusively to more than 2 million cable subscribers on Channel 1 on Time Warner Cable systems, NY1 covers the city with more than 40 full-time reporters and is completely dedicated to New York City news and information.

NY1 expanded into New York City’s Latino community by launching the city’s first 24-hour Spanish-language news channel, NY1 Noticias in June 2003. The channel is available on Time Warner Cable’s DTV channel 801.

Since its inception, NY1 News has become an indispensable community asset and is now the model for cable news channels nationwide. By combining innovative technology with a strong commitment to reporting, NY1 presents viewers with the most comprehensive New York City news, sports, weather, business and features.

For New Yorkers, New York 1 is the only local news worth watching.

In Case You Missed Michelle Obama…

Here’s where you can hear Mrs. Obama’s speech.

Our student speakers, the valedictorian and salutatorian, were also fantastic. Learn more about them here. Mrs. Obama was particularly impressed with Orubba Almansouri, a Mellon Mays scholar with a 3.97 GPA. (She salute Orubba with an instagram post that went viral.) Born and raised in Yemen, Orubba was discouraged from finishing school. But she fought back — and thanked her parents at commencement, including a tribute to her mother in Arabic. Here’s her speech.
