A professor of African-American studies, public affairs, and gender and sexuality studies at Princeton University, Perry is also the author of More Beautiful and More Terrible: The Embrace and Transcendence of Racial Inequality in the United States and May We Forever Stand: A History of the Black National Anthem.
