Professor * Public Intellectual * W. E. B. Du Bois Scholar
Thank you for visiting www.EarlWright2.com. Dr. Earl Wright II is the nation's leading authority on Black Sociology and the contributions of the Atlanta Sociological Laboratory to the discipline of sociology. This site is a public venue for the presentation of the research, intellectual activities and social justice endeavors of a Hip-Hop scholar who is dedicated to investigating and improving the society in which we live. It is my sincere hope that this site proves useful to you. It is also my sincere hope that you embrace each day as an opportunity to challenge and better yourself. In so doing, let the words of Dr. Carter G. Woodson (Mis-Education of the Negro) constantly ring in your ears:
"A mind that remains in the present atmosphere never undergoes sufficient development to experience what is commonly known as thinking."
Check out my new book, Repositioning Race: Prophetic Research in a Post-Racial Obama Age (SUNY Press) that is co-edited with Sandra L. Barnes and Zandria F. Robinson.
