Calvin Bell III is a junior political science and philosophy double major from Pennsauken, New Jersey. Currently his UNCF Mellon Mays research evaluates the structural parallels between the criminal justice system and normative systems such as academic institutions. However, he designs a “school of radical love” to explore the transgressive and imaginative perspective of what pedagogy can become.
Through the Quarterman-Keller Scholars Program, Calvin looks forward to engaging in oral research, anti-racist training, and dialogue as forms of restorative justice. By partaking in this social justice program, fellows like Calvin will be able to uplift principles of racial healing, truth, and transformation through an anti-racist framework.
I am social justice…
“because I seek to amplify the voices of the unheard, serve constituents who lack the resources to serve themselves, cultivate equitable spaces in places without them, and spread radical love in a world full of hatred.”
