Melting pot or tossed salad? The U.S. criminal justice system may prove to be fueling intolerance rather than enabling society to accommodate racial and ethnic differences. Dr. Williams, a university lecturer in Criminology, offers a scholarly examination of race, ethnicity and the relationship between definitions and criminalization. She raises the challenging question whether it is, in fact, intolerance that leads to racism.
Dr. Williams is an Assistant Lecturer at North Carolina A&T State University. Her research concentrates on: Minority issues in Criminal Justice, Capital Punishment, and Media Influence in Criminal Justice. She is a Certified Social & Behavioral Research Investigator and a Certified Criminal Justice Specialist.
Most recently, Dr. Williams’ piece entitled “The Increasing Influence of Islamic Fundamentalists on the African-American Community” was included in a compilation of work entitled Ethics of Terrorism: Innovative Approaches from an International Perspective, edited by Dr Thomas Albert Gilly and Dr Yakov Giliskiy in association with Dr Vladimir Sergevnin.
Dr. Williams is a member of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, American Society of Criminologists, National Association of Forensic Counselors and Society for the Study of Social Problems.
