Elijah Anderson, William K. Lanman Professor of Sociology, has received the prestigious Cox-Johnson-Frazier Award from the American Sociological Association. The award recognizes work in the tradition of African-American scholars W.E.B. DuBois, Oliver Cromwell Cox, Charles S. Johnson, and E. Franklin Frazier, who put “their scholarship in service to social justice, with an eye toward advancing the status of disadvantaged populations,” notes the award committee. The award will be formally presented at the ASA’s August 2013 meeting in New York City. For more news, see the Yale News >>
