Join the African American Program of the Heinz History Center and the Episcopal Church, Province III as they present acclaimed author and educator Dr. Jacqueline Battalora for a lecture and workshop on race and freedom in America.

Jacqueline Battalora is an attorney and professor who works as an anti-racist writer and educator. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, she lived in Antwerp, Belgium for six years before her family relocated to Victoria, Tx. The experience of attending middle and high school in Texas formed her understanding of race in America. While she is currently a lawyer and professor of sociology and criminal justice at Saint Xavier University in Chicago, she is also a former Chicago Police officer. She holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University and has been engaged in anti-racist training since the mid-1990s.

Battalora's writings explore the enforcement of divisions between people, specifically the making of human difference in law. The author of "Birth of a White Nation," as well as numerous articles, Battalora speaks widely on the topic of the invention of white people in law and has been conducting training sessions since the mid-1990s.
