Khalil G. Muhammad is a 1 time AALBC.com Bestselling Author

Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad was the director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, a research library of the New York Public Library and the world’s leading archive of the global black experience. His position begins in July 2011.

For the past five years, Dr. Muhammad has been an assistant professor of American History at Indiana University, and, as of August 2010, the associate editor of the Journal of American History. Following the completion of his doctorate from Rutgers University, he spent two years as a Mellon Fellow at the Vera Institute of Justice, a criminal justice think tank in New York City. He is the author of The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, published by Harvard University Press. Condemnation was selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as a top ten title for Black History Month, and recommended in the April issue of Ebony Magazine. Glenn Loury of Brown University says Condemnation “is the most significant work in the study of race and American society to have appeared in the past decade.”

Dr. Muhammad’s scholarship has been featured in the Washington Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and the Charlotte Observer, as well as on National Public Radio, Pacifica Radio, and Radio One. He was a commentator in a 2009 PBS documentary, Witnesses to History, on the election of Barack Obama, and a featured panelist at this summer’s National Urban League Centennial Conference. He appears monthly on local radio and writes for theDefendersonline.com, a blog of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. He speaks regularly about the history of race relations and its ongoing challenges to student groups, community organizations, professional societies, and policy researchers.

Muhammad is the great-grandson of Elijah Muhammad, who led the Nation of Islam during the mid-20th century.
