Sy Stokes

Sy Stokes is a 1st year doctoral student at the University of Southern California Rossier School of Education and Research Associate at the USC Race and Equity Center. While an undergraduate student at UCLA, Sy produced a video entitled “The Black Bruins” in which he took his alma mater to task for racial disparities among the admission and graduation of Black male undergraduates. In addition to having received more that 2-million views online, “The Black Bruins” was a catalyst for similar mediated mobilization campaigns at other colleges and universities to include the University of Michigan, Harvard University, and Oregon State University. His research interests focus on how multiracial people develop activist identities in a society that is heavily structured upon monoracial stratifications.
