Jamii Sisterhood: Building a Movement For and About Black Women in Higher Education in Prison
Dr. Erin Corbett, Dr. Bahiyyah Muhammad, and Dr. Breea Willingham grew sick and tired of the overwhelmingly white HEP field, and the perpetual silencing of Black women in HEP. No longer interested in begging for a seat at the table, this trio of Black women scholars decided to build their own table and chairs to create the Jamii Sisterhood, LLC - a community for and about Black women in higher education in prison. In their presentation, Drs. Corbett, Muhammad, and Willingham will discuss the work they have been doing to fight racial inequity in HEP, and Jamii's new initiative titled Project Freedom - the launching pad for the field-wide, deliberate, and intentional increase of the representation of Black and LatinX persons engaged in HEP.

Presenters:
Dr. Erin Corbett, co-founder and CEO of Second Chance Educational Alliance
Dr. Bahiyyah Muhammad, Associate Professor of Criminology at Howard University
Dr. Breea Willingham, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at SUNY Plattsburgh
