Invited by the University’s Department of Film & Interactive Media, Hurt screened his most publicized films, Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes, which takes a critical look at hip hop and rap music through Hurt’s own eyes as a self-acclaimed fan. Soul Food Junkies, Hurt’s latest work, which celebrates the role soul food, has played in African American culture while also examining the part soul food plays in some of the African American community’s greatest health challenges.
Hurt also provided advice and instruction in multiple film courses, talked with student leaders, and screened Soul Food Junkies to faculty, staff, students and the local community.

In 2011, Fox News Channel (FNC) selected Saint Augustine's University as one of two 2011-2012 nationwide partners for its Fox News Channel University /Ailes Rising Apprentice scholarship.
Goodridge, a native of New York, is a senior majoring in Mass Communications with a concentration in broadcast journalism at SAU.
“The fact that FOX selected another SAU student suggests that SAU and its departments are doing an effective job of preparing students academically,” stated Dr. Dianne Boardley Suber, president of Saint Augustine’s University. “This is yet another great measure of a positive student outcome.”
SAU graduate, Sakeeda Freeman, was the 2011-2012 Fox’s Rising Apprentice scholarship recipient.
Essentially, SAU and WTCC will facilitate seamless transfers for WTCC graduates who earn Associate in Applied Science, Business Administration at Wake Technical Community College into Saint Augustine’s University.
Wake Tech Community College will also provide Saint Augustine’s University admissions representatives with access to prospective students under this agreement through recognition on the WTCC “Choices” website and at transfer functions arranged through WTCC’s Student Services. Saint Augustine’s University agrees to provide WTCC with an annual report of progress under this agreement to include the number of students accepted and enrolled at Saint Augustine’s University and, the status of graduates under this program.
President of the University, Dr. Dianne Boardley Suber, is excited about the partnership, “Education takes a collective effort, we welcome such partnerships with other institutions.”
