Aldon Morris, professor of sociology and African American studies at Northwestern University, gives the Department of Sociology's annual Lemert Lecture.
A scholar of black social protest, theory, social inequality, race and the sociology of W.E.B. Du Bois, Morris received the 2018 John D. McCarthy Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Scholarship of Social Movements and Collective Behavior and the 2009 Cox-Johnson-Frazier Major Award, which honors social justice scholars advancing the status of disadvantaged groups.
His award-winning book, The Scholar Denied: W.E.B. Du Bois and the Birth of Modern Sociology, rewrites the history of sociology and American intellectuals by showing how institutional racism and white supremacy denied Du Bois recognition as the founder of American sociology.
Among other books, Morris also wrote Origins of the Civil Rights Movement: Black Communities Organizing For Change.
