Dr. H. Samy Alim, the Egyptian American author of Articulate While Black was a guest on MSNBC's The Cycle on October 8, 2012 where he discussed just how interesting a linguistic figure President Obama is because of his ability to “code switch” between black and white speech patterns.

DR. H. SAMY ALIM
H. Samy Alim is an Associate Professor in the Social Sciences, Humanities, and Interdisciplinary Policy Studies in Education (SHIPS) program faculty in Educational Linguistics and holds by courtesy appointments in Anthropology and Linguistics. His goal is to illuminate the relationships between language, race and ethnicity across a wide range of social, cultural and educational contexts. His research integrates rigorous linguistic analysis with in-depth, ethnographic engagement in local communities to contribute to theory and methodology in education, sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, and race and ethnic studies. Alim develops this knowledge with the twin goals of understanding how youth make sense of their social worlds and communities and helping them do so by impacting teacher preparation, pedagogy and policy. He has an interest in language, literacy, and youth culture, particularly Hip Hop Culture, and critical language awareness for socially marginalized and linguistically profiled populations.

The CoHo at Stanford University was full of students on April 29, 2011 who came to watch the "Brooklyn Beats to Beirut Streets" Artist Workshop featuring Omar Offendum, Nizar Wattad, Mark Gonzales (The Human Writes Project).

The performance, which featured all three speakers reflecting and rapping about their lives, their identity quest(s), politics, East-West relations, and much more, was applauded by the audience who later engaged the 3 artists in an extensive Q & A session.

The event was organized as part of the "Global Flows--Globalization of Hip hop Art, Culture, and Politics" series of events/course offered at Stanford by Professor H. Samy Alim.
