Dr Imani Perry is a scholar of law, literary and cultural studies, and an author of creative nonfiction. She is the Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University. Her writing and scholarship primarily focus on the history of Black thought, art, and imagination crafted in response to, and resistance against, the social, political, and legal realities of domination in the West. Dr. Perry’s many books, including Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry have received numerous awards and nominations. Her future planned projects include a new book taking readers on a narrative journey through the American South’s heartlands, as well as other research initiatives which examine African American theories of law and justice and meditate on the color blue in Black life. She earned her PhD in American Studies from Harvard University, a JD from Harvard Law School, an LLM from Georgetown University Law Center, and a BA from Yale College in Literature and American Studies.
