Born Michelle Latrice Alexander on August 26, 1988, to the parents of Michael and Nadine Alexander. I am an artist in the making. I have been in love with music since the day my father presented me with a keyboard. My family on my father side is very talented with music, some played instruments some were singers.

My father who played in the marching band, middle and high school, put me on the path to music becoming my passion. He put me in piano class for a few years, which did not pan out so well for the teachers, I had kept having to stop learning due to my teachers kept moving. After that, my dad took it upon himself to teach me what he knew, and I took it from there.

 In high school for my four whole years at Scotlandville Magnet High School Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I took every choir course they offered, Show choir, All-Parish Choir, Girls Choir, Gospel Choir and of course the school choir.  I attended Baton Rouge Community College and meet an awesome teacher by the name of Ms. Gillian. She taught me how to sight read, she also refreshed my memory on some techniques on the piano and played a role as a vocal coach.

 Now today, I feel that everything I learned musically help build my foundation on pursuing my dream.  I am now working on my first album with my best friend and business partner Kane The Professor who is the founder and president of Population Entertainment. The title of my album is “I Am” which will be dropping soon.  Right now, I have a few singles out called “Party Animal”,” Get Away Featuring: Turk of The Hot Boys”, and “I Am”. They are available on iTunes and all mp3 stores.

 I am blessed and grateful for Kane the Professor for taking a chance on me so that I may be able to take a shot at going for my dream.

2016 Plenary Address: Michelle Alexander with Kelly Brown Douglas

American Academy of Religion
Episode artwork
Read more
Michelle Alexander is a highly acclaimed civil rights lawyer, advocate, and legal scholar. Alexander is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and Stanford Law School. Following law school, she clerked for Justice Harry A. Blackmun on the U.S. Supreme Court and for Chief Judge Abner Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Prior to entering academia, Alexander served as the director of the Racial Justice Project for the ACLU of Northern California, where she coordinated the Project’s media advocacy, grassroots organizing, coalition building, and litigation. The Project’s priority areas were educational equity and criminal justice reform, and it was during those years at the ACLU that she began to awaken to the reality that our nation’s criminal justice system functions more like a caste system than a system of crime prevention or control. She became passionate about exposing and challenging racial bias in the criminal justice system, ultimately launching and leading a major campaign against racial profiling by law enforcement known as the “DWB Campaign” or “Driving While Black or Brown Campaign.” In addition to her nonprofit advocacy experience, Alexander has worked as a litigator at private law firms including Saperstein, Goldstein, Demchak & Baller, in Oakland, California, where she specialized in plaintiff-side class-action lawsuits alleging race and gender discrimination. In 2005, she won a Soros Justice Fellowship, which supported the writing of "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness" (The New Press, 2012), and that same year she accepted a joint appointment at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Moritz College of Law at Ohio State University. She currently devotes much of her time to freelance writing; public speaking; consulting with advocacy organizations committed to ending mass incarceration; and, most important, raising her three young children—the most challenging and rewarding job of all.

In this plenary address from the 2016 AAR Annual Meeting, Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas (Goucher College) interviews Alexander, and the women converse in turn about racial (in)justice, the election, and religion's role in U.S. politics.

The session is introduced by 2016 AAR president, Serene Jones.

This plenary was recorded during the 2016 Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, on November 20.
