In a time where there are so many negative images of Black males, it is important to note that there are those who are doing amazing things and making a positive impact.
Julian Grayer is one such young man. He is a graduate of Xavier University of Louisiana alum (BS ’13); University of Alabama at Birmingham (MS ’15) and is the son of proud parents Ricardo Grayer and Dionne Peters.
His dissertation “When They See Us: Racial Criminalization, Stigma and Identity in a Midwest College Town” examines how African American Students navigate their identities and interactions in largely White contexts where they are often coded and socially marked as “suspect”.
Dr. Grayer, has accepted a position at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater as a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology, Criminology, and Anthropology.
Congratulations to Dr. Julian Grayer, he is a shining example of Black Male Excellence.
