Affirmative Action: Fall Down, Get Back Up Again
Guest host Phoebe Judge speaks with Jarius Sowells about his time at the University of Texas. He failed his first year and took time off until he felt ready to try again.
Sowells says the African American enrollment at the university is low and needs to be higher, and that affirmative action is necessary.
Phoebe speaks to Sowells as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to rule on a case over racial preferences in admissions by the University of Texas.
