I was drawn to sociology in college out of a sense of moral outrage at the racial injustices and turmoil that plagued American society at that time. Sociologists seemed to have the best analysis of those conflicts and at least some of the solutions.
As a professor at Albion College for the last thirty years, I have shared my passion for racial and ethnic justice with students, and encouraged them to explore this issue in their own lives. I am extremely gratified when they tell me that their perspectives on the social world have expanded or deepened as a result of our conversations, and when I see this manifested in the quality of their scholarship. I take heart in the realization that these students will be our future leaders.
