Patrick Douthit, aka 9th Wonder, has been invited by Duke University to teach an African American Studies course for the spring semester. The course will review songs from the Civil Rights & Black Power Movements, 9th focusing on “sampling soul”.

“The class is studying soul music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, the neighborhoods it came out of and where was the influence for this song to come out of,” Wonder said in an interview, “I’m excited man, it’s a new frontier for me. I’m always excited for new frontiers.”

But don’t get it twisted, this is not Wonder’s first time in the classroom. He previously taught a class on hip-hop at North Carolina Central University. I would love to take a class with Wonder as my teacher!
