Orlando Patterson, Sociologist, Professor at Harvard
Orlando Patterson has conducted extensive research on ethno-racial relations and the social and cultural effects of poverty among black youth in the United States. The analyses and proposals contribute to public debate on these issues. They are more than ever current after the election of Donald Trump. Professor Patterson is the author of several books, including Slavery and Social Death (1982), Freedom in the Making of Western Culture (1991), The Ordeal of Integration (1997), The Cultural Matrix: Understanding Black Youth (with Ethan Fosse, 2015). The author of three novels, he has published widely in journals of opinion and the national press, especially The New York Times.
