Scholars I Read and Resources

James Baldwin

Please try to remember that what they believe, as well as what they do and cause you to endure does not testify to your inferiority but to their inhumanity.

James Baldwin

My research and teaching centers on issues related to the U.S. criminal justice system, racial and ethnic inequalities, and the sentencing of monetary sanctions. My advocacy work aims to translate my research to the public to engage in policy reform for real structural changes within U.S. institutions. I conduct public lectures and workshops with people of all ages with the aim of opening dialogues about racism, structural inequalities and criminal justice reform.
