This website provides information about African American scholars’ perspectives on crime causation, criminal justice administration, and crime prevention. Included only are the works of scholars of African descent holding an earned Ph.D. or doctorate degree in criminology and/or criminal justice from an accredited university located within the USA.

Hopefully, these experts’ insights into crime and its control will encourage a robust and productive discussion about future crime control strategies among our colleagues in the fields of criminology and criminal justice, the students we teach, the public and private sector policymakers we hope to influence, and the residents of this great nation whom we seek to serve.
