Dr. Jason Shelton grew up in South Central L.A., and became aware of social class at an early age. He says this led to his current research on how race, class, and other social factors construct how black people experience the world. Dr. Shelton recently became the director for the Center of African American Studies. He shares what he wants to bring to the center this year.
