Dr. Karida Brown

Dr. Karida Brown is a tenure-track assistant professor in both the Department of African American Studies and the Department of Sociology at UCLA. She earned her PhD in sociology from Brown University in 2016, and an MPA in government administration from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011. Her research focuses on the relationship between race, social transformations, and communal memory. She is the author of two books — Gone Home: Race and Roots through Appalachia (UNC Press, 2018) and The Sociology of W.E.B. Du Bois: Racialized Modernity and the Global Color Line (co-authored with José Itzigsohn, NYU Press, 2020). Dr. Brown is working on her third book, Separate and Unequal, which focuses on the history of racially segregated education systems and its enduring legacies on racial inequality in present-day education. She currently serves on the boards of The Obama Presidency Oral History Project and the Du Boisian Scholar Network. Recently, Dr. Brown joined the Los Angeles Lakers as Director of Racial Equity & Action.
