Andrea Lawful Sanders elevates the issue of education in the African American community

Andrea Lawful Sanders kicks off her first show as a permanent host on WURD with visits from CCP’s Dr. David Thomas and Juwan Bennet, a PhD candidate at Temple who began CCP as a dual enrollment student. He started college classes at the age of 15. “I believe education is the largest gateway out of poverty, out of criminal behavior, and, Lord have mercy, it is the largest gateway out of everything,” Sanders tells her listeners. She spoke with Thomas and Bennett for two hours, urging parents to seize opportunities for their kids. Juwan, a PHD candidate at the age of 26, received his bachelor’s degree from Temple at the age of 19. Listen to highlights:
