Graduate Student Information

Brandi Williams is from Evanston, IL. She did her undergraduate work at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, IL where she majored in Elementary Education and minored in Spanish. Brandi received her BA degree in Education and participated in the McNair Scholars Program at NEIU in December 2010. Her research interest include but are not limited to Pan African Studies, Women and Gender Studies, Feminist Theory/Movement, and Religious Movements, and how all of the above impact the Black woman and family in the United states and in the African diaspora. Through studying literature and family structures both past and present, familial values and patterns, and generational strongholds I hope to build and/or aid organizations in empowering and strengthening the Black family which in turn would strengthen the Black community.
