    Policing Blackness: How Intersectional Threat Shapes Politics

    Jenn Jackson, Ph.D., argues that Black Americans experience threat in dynamic ways based on their social location, including race, class, gender, disability and embodiment, and orientation to power. This process of encountering and responding to the potential social risks of public Blackness ultimately is an “intersectional threat.”

    Dr. Jackson, who uses they/them pronouns, is a queer, androgynous Black woman, community organizer, and assistant professor at Syracuse University in the Department of Political Science. Their research is in Black politics with a focus on Black feminist movements, racial threat, gender and sexuality, and political behavior. Dr. Jackson is the author of the forthcoming book Black Women Taught Us.
