"A charismatic teacher who prefers active learning to instruction by PowerPoint, Sociology and Multicultural and Gender Studies Professor Nandi Crosby uses pop culture and current media to challenge students’ assumptions and push them past easy answers or personal opinions.

Crosby’s passion for social justice is evident in the several books she’s published, including This Side of My Struggle, a collection of stories from prisoners about their incarceration...When asked, she explains her philosophy this way: 'Justice is what love looks like in public.'"
