Race, Law & The Power of Words to Change our World with Jeffrey Van Dyk & Jody David Armour
The Jeffrey Van Dyk Show
A widely published scholar and popular lecturer, Armour is a Soros Justice Senior Fellow of The Open Society Institute’s Center on Crime, Communities and Culture.
His book Negrophobia and Reasonable Racism: The Hidden Costs of Being Black in America (New York University Press) addresses three core concerns of the Black Lives Matter movement—namely, racial profiling, police brutality, and mass incarceration. His second book N*gga Theory: Race, Language, Unequal Justice, and the Law (LARB Books) examines law, language, and moral luck in the criminal justice system.
Armour currently teaches students a diverse array of subjects, including Criminal Law, Torts, and Stereotypes and Prejudice: The Role of the Cognitive Unconscious in the Rule of Law.
