Op-Ed Alert: SXU's Jacqueline Battalora talks of the "Sign of the Times" in Daily Southtown


Saint Xavier University's (SXU) Dr. Jacqueline Battalora, professor of sociology, anthropology, and criminal justice, wrote an article in the Monday, May 2 issue of the Daily Southtown. Her article discusses the signs of the times – everything from the passing of Prince, a musical icon; to the U.S. Department of Treasury's announcement calling for female representation on U.S. currency; and finally addressing the impact of a presidency with Donald Trump at the helm.

Dr. Battalora is a former Chicago police officer and the author of the 2013 book entitled, "Birth of a White Nation: The Invention of White People and Its Relevance Today." Dr. Battalora holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University and has engaged in anti-racist training since the mid-1990s.
