The Department of American Studies on October 1 welcomed Dee Dee Sharp to GW, where she spoke to a room packed with members of the GW community.  Dee Dee Sharp, with her hit single "Mashed Potato Time", was America's first black female teen idol and is an inspiration to many.  Prof. Gayle Wald moderated the discussion in which Dee Dee reflected on her career and life.
