Saida Grundy Wins Race, Gender, and Class Book Award From the American Sociology Association

Saida Grundy, associate professor of sociology and African American and Black diaspora studies at Boston University, has been awarded the 2024 Race, Gender, and Class Book Award from the American Sociological Association for her book, Respectable: Politics and Paradox in Making the Morehouse Man (University of California Press, 2022). The book explores the culture and experiences of graduates from Morehouse College in Atlanta, the country’s only historically Black college for men.

Dr. Grundy has been a faculty member with Boston University since 2015. Alongside her primary appointments in sociology and African American and Black diaspora studies, she holds a faculty affiliation with the university’s women’s and gender studies program. Her current research interests center around masculinity and social justice capitalism, racialized rape culture, and bridging hegemonic masculinity theories to the understanding of campus sexual assault.

Dr. Grundy is a graduate of Spelman College in Atlanta, where she studied sociology, anthropology, and comparative women’s studies. She received her master’s degree and a Ph.D. in sociology and women’s studies from the University of Michigan.
