Gene McAdoo Doctoral Researcher

Gene McAdoo is a doctoral candidate in UCLA’s School of Education and Information Studies, Urban Schooling Division. He is an abolitionist whose research and praxis are guided by the imperative of abolishing all forms of carcerality, and the belief that another world without this reality is possible. His research interests focus on the intersection of Black studies and education, and are primarily concerned with conceptualizing, developing, and implementing more liberatory models of education for Black students. His work explores the utility of counterhegemonic all-Black educational spaces in cultivating Black students’ liberatory consciousness.
