Tracy Perkins is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at Howard University whose work engages environmental sociology and the study of social movements. She focuses on environmental justice activism to show how marginalized populations affect political change at the intersection of social inequality, health, and the environment. She is currently working on a book manuscript about the history and political evolution of California environmental justice activism since the 1980s. Other projects cover a 1990s era anti-nuclear waste landfill campaign in the Mojave Desert's Ward Valley, and green gentrification in Washington D.C. Her work integrates print and digital scholarship to reach a wide audience. Dr. Perkins has a B.A. in Development Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, a M.S. in Community Development from the University of California, Davis, and a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
