Bio/Research

Regarded as one of the nation’s leading African American intellectuals, Glaude is chair of the Department of African American Studies and the William S. Tod Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University. He is the author of Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul, African American Religion: A Very Short Introduction, Exodus! Religion, Race and Nation in the Early 19th Century Black America, which won the Modern Language Association’s William Sanders Scarborough Book Prize; and In a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America. Glaude edited the anthology Is It Nation Time? Contemporary Essays on Black Power and Black Nationalism and co-edited African American Religious Thought: An Anthology with Cornel West. Glaude has provided commentary on PBS News Hour, The Majority Report, CNN, C-Span, MSNBC, and other media outlets. He regularly contributes written op-eds to the New York Times, Time Magazine, the Huffington Post, among other publications. Speaking recently to Gwen Ifill, Glaude stated, “Something dramatic must happen if we are to change the course of this nation. We can't rest on old strategies and tactics.” In his books and interviews, he calls for more careful, critical reflections of the stories and experiences of blacks in America, which are often reduced to one collective narrative, employing a practice he calls “accessible seriousness,” in the life of the mind. A 1989 graduate of Morehouse College, Glaude also holds a master’s degree in African American Studies from Temple University and master’s degree and Ph.D in religion from Princeton University. He has been a visiting scholar at Harvard University and Amherst College.
