Professor Bradley's research broadly examines the ways in which anti-Black sentiment perpetually undergirds the drivers and levers of federal, state and institutional policies across the P-20 pipeline in ways that (un)intentionally reify the social stratification of Black peoples across the diaspora.
Her work employs theories of anti-blackness, socio-legal concepts and critical qualitative methodologies to address issues of Black education, hate speech and anti-racist inclusion on predominantly White campuses; post-secondary access facing racially minoritized community college transfer students; and legislative influence on emergent tier-one universities and HBCU-HSI institutions.
