About Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad

Since July 2011, Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad has served as the Director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Khalil Gibran Muhammad was previously an assistant professor of American History at Indiana University. Following the completion of his Ph.D. from Rutgers University, he spent two years as a Mellon Fellow at the Vera Institute of Justice, a criminal justice think tank in New York City. He is the author of The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, published this January by Harvard University Press. Condemnation was selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as a top ten title for Black History Month, and is recommended in the April issue of Ebony Magazine. Glenn Loury of Brown University says Condemnation “is the most significant work in the study of race and American society to have appeared in the past decade.” Dr. Muhammad’s scholarship has been featured in the Washington Post, on National Public Radio, and Pacifica Radio. He was a featured commentator in a 2009 PBS documentary, Witnesses to History, on the election of Barack Obama. He appears monthly on local radio and writes for theDefendersonline.com, a blog of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
