Street Scholar

STREET SCHOLAR is an unapologetic call-to-action that challenges the Academy to thoughtfully and intentionally engage in public scholarship. Dr. Jones introduces us to a “street scholar” - someone whose mission, movements, and motivation are rooted in activism and community uplift. She describes her journey through academia as an Afro-Latina scholar who uses social media as an educational tool to educate, advocate, and liberate.

"Academics often throw around words like 'engaged scholarship' or 'praxis' when what they mean is 'sometimes I spend time with people outside the academy. Angel Jones presents us with a volume that demonstrates what it means to build knowledge from the ground (or should I say, street) up. This should be on every educator's bookshelf!"
