About this Event
Join us for the third conversation in the Racial Justice Speaker Series with Dr. TaLisa Carter at UCF College of Community Innovation and Education Department of Criminal Justice.
Dr. Carter’s Shade of Justice Project examines the relationship between colorism and perceptions of justice-related issues including how experiences and perceptions of skin tone relate to broader views of justice and occupational aspirations.
TaLisa J. Carter, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Justice, Law & Criminology at American University, an Affiliated Scholar at Urban Institute, and an Affiliate with the Center for Advancing Correctional Excellence at George Mason University. Her research examines theoretical explanations of accountability in the criminal justice system, the role of identity in criminal justice professions, and the impact of colorism on criminal justice outcomes.
Previously, she worked as a Deputy Corrections Officer in Savannah, GA where she supervised male and female residents with diverse classification statuses. Her work has been funded by the National Science Foundation and published in Deviant Behavior and Sociological Forum.
