Dr. Khalil Muhammad of Harvard University
Dr. Muhammad is one of the nation’s leading scholars of Carceral Studies and a pioneer in the historical study of criminality in particular. He also contributed a key piece to The 1619 Project and is an expert on DEI in higher education. His keynote address will take up “The Condemnation of Blackness: Slavery, Racial Capitalism, and Abolition in the 21st Century.” Our plan for his visit also includes a pedagogy workshop on teaching about race/racism across the disciplines, a class visit/meeting with students (including but not limited to those enrolled in the Justice Journey course), and a dinner with faculty and community partners.
