Decolonial Black

Personal Blog/Website of William Jamal Richardson


This website is the personal website and blog for myself, William Jamal Richardson. I’m a Sociology PhD student at Northwestern University. The primary purpose of this website is to be a space for my academic and political writing including:

  • In-progress research ideas (primarily from my dissertation research)
  • Public versions of my published academic writing
  • Previously unpublished academic work that may or may not end up in a peer-reviewed journal
  • Political/Current events writing
  • Personal reflections

Because this is my personal website, I want it to be a reflection of who I am as a whole integrated person, not just an academic, activist, etc. hence why I have so many different genres of writing in the same place.

I will be filling out this section with more of my personal and academic history and posting some works in progress, but look out for more updates.
