Dr. David Stovall – Professor of African American Studies and Educational Policy Studies
Dr. Stovall studies the influence of race in urban education, community development, and housing. His work investigates the significance of race in the quality of schools located in communities that are changing both racially and economically. From a practical and theoretical perspective, his research draws from Critical Race Theory, educational policy analysis, sociology, urban planning, political science, community organizing, and youth culture.
In 2006, he published the book chapter “From Hunger Strike to High School: Youth Development, Social Justice and School Formation” in Beyond Resistance!: Youth and community change – new democratic possibilities for practice and policy for America’s youth.
