Celebrating success


Amna Akbar, professor of law in the Moritz College of Law and co-author of “Race, Racism and American Law, 7th Ed.,” is a recipient of the Freedom Scholars Awards for 2021. The Freedom Scholars are leading research in critical fields including abolitionist, Black, feminist, queer, radical and anti-colonialist studies. The annual award, established in 2020, counters the limited financial resources and research constraints frequently faced by scholars whose work supports social movements. The cohort of scholars will each receive $250,000 in unrestricted funds, distributed over two years, to utilize as they see fit.
