Bars & Bookings: The Criminalization of Black People in the United States

Makaylee Stewart

Senior, Psychology


This research seeks to discuss the criminalization of Black people in the United States. The history and origins of this issue that has continued to plague the lives of African Americans for centuries will be reviewed and examined. The ways in which criminalization of African American men, women, and youth occur and the effects it has on African Americans will be researched and explained. This research will be done using a combination of newspapers, academic articles, primary, and secondary sources. The rate at which African Americans are criminalized and incarcerated in comparison to other races has proven to be detrimental to the mental health, Black family, and flourishment of the African American community. Knowing why and how may prove to be vital in the understanding of the Black experience in the United States and the work towards change.
