Jessie Daniels, PhD is a Mellon Fellow (2012-2013) at the Center for the Humanities at the CUNY Graduate Center, and Professor of Urban Public Health and Sociology.  She is the author of Cyber Racism (2009) and White Lies (1997), as well as dozens of peer-reviewed articles in journals such as New Media & Society, Gender & Society, American Journal of Public Health, and Women’s Studies Quarterly.  

Daniels has also done research with young men leaving Rikers Island, New York City’s largest jail. This research explored the role of masculinity and race in promoting health and a paper based on that research recently won the Sarah Mazelis Paper of the Year Award for 2011.

Since 2007, she and Joe Feagin have maintained a scholarly blog, RacismReview, that regularly gets 200,000 unique visitors each month, and has received well over than 2 million visitors since it began.

Daniels is writing a memoir about coming of age in South Texas during school desegregation in the 1970s called “No Daughter of Mine.” 

Here are Jessie’s first five…
"The best aggregator ever, especially for someone like me with wide array of interests - from race / gender, health, cities, higher ed, documentary films and memoir writing, Twitter is the one place I can go to find more about each of those.  This the first site I visit each day, and it’s the most useful to me by far."
"My current obsession: questions about the interface between social media, academia and change that promotes social justice. The folks at the LSE Social Impact blog are doing an excellent job of exploring these issues."
"Some of my favorite sociologists blog here, and I always find something interesting."
"Lots to love over at The Atlantic, especially Ta-Nehisi Coates’ eloquent writing and their section on cities."
“‘Hip-hop feminists of color, queer and straight, in the academy and out’….because they give me hope.”
