The Department of African American Studies would like to congratulate our 2023-2024 Anna Julia Cooper Fellow, Jessica Lee Stovall, on receiving the Outstanding Dissertation Award at the Critical Educators for Social Justice business meeting last week at the AERA (American Education Research Association) conference in Philadelphia.


Stovall also participated in the Roundtable discussion: “A Choreography of Difference: Exploring the Racial Choreographies of Un/Scripting Unapologetic Blackness in Education” and presented a paper at an invited presidential session called “Choreographies of Gender: Disrupting Anti-Blackness and Its Others Through a Queer Black Male Perspective”.
