About Glenn McNair

Glenn M. McNair joined the Department of History in the fall of 2001, completing a transition from law-enforcement officer to academic. Prior to entering graduate school he had been employed as a police officer and special agent with the U.S. Treasury Department. These experiences in law enforcement have inspired and informed his research agenda, which focuses on relations between African Americans and the criminal justice system. His current research focuses on changes in black political culture and empowerment strategies since the Civil Rights Era.
In teaching African American history, McNair attempts to explore what it means to be black in America and to foster student appreciation of the centrality of the African American experience to American social, political, cultural and intellectual life.
