Lost Black Scholar
Allison Davis, a preeminent black scholar and social science pioneer, is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking investigations into inequality, Jim Crow America, and the cultural biases of intelligence testing. Her work had tangible and lasting effects on public policy yet remains largely absent from the historical record. For someone who generated such an extensive body of work this marginalisation is particularly surprising. But it is also revelatory.
