Professor publishes book examining identity politics

Khalilah L. Brown-Dean, associate professor of political science, has dedicated her career to affirming humanity with an intense passion for politics. “I believe in the power of story-telling to connect us and tap into our common humanity,” said Brown-Dean.

Her new book “Identity Politics in the United States” was published earlier this year — and has received the attention of hundreds of media organizations across the United States, including The New York Times, The Hill, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News and The Washington Post. It also skyrocketed to the top of Amazon's new releases.

A fall tradition
