Reflections on Activism and Community Engagement When Black Lives Matter: Conversations with Ariana E. Alexander, E. Frances White, and Jennifer D. Williams

(p.222) Cast Your Net Wide

Patricia A. Matthew

University of North Carolina Press

E. France White’s reflection as a dean and vice provost are juxtaposed against the questions and aspirations of two junior scholars (Ariana Alexander and Jennifer Williams) who are developing academic careers on and off the tenure track at a time when student protestors area seeking to study with a more diverse professoriate. Connected through their experiences at New York University, the women discuss the role of scholarship and community engagement and consider the issue of community engagement during the Black Lives Matter movement. Set against the backdrop of Morgan State University’s response to the Freddie Gray killing, the essay poses more questions than it answers but also challenges administrators to put material support behind their calls for faculty leadership during times of social unrest.
