The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, in partnership with our counterparts in UAB's Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, proudly welcomes Charles Howard Candler Professor of African American Studies at Emory University. New York Times Bestseller, and National Book Critics Circle Award winning author, Dr. Carol Anderson. Dr. Anderson’s research explores how policy is made and unmade, how racial inequality and racism affect that process and outcome, and how those who have taken the brunt of those laws, executive orders, and directives have worked to shape, counter, undermine, reframe, and, when necessary, dismantle the legal and political edifice used to limit their rights and their humanity. Some of her most noted works include White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Nation's Divide; Eyes Off the Prize: The United Nations and the African American Struggle for Human Rights, 1944-1955; Bourgeois Radicals: The NAACP and the Struggle for Colonial Liberation, 1941-1960, One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying Our Democracy, and her latest book, The Second: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America.
