Center for Research on Social Change faculty affiliate Nikki Jones has won the 2020 Michael J. Hindelang Award from the American Society of Criminology, recognizing her book as making the most outstanding contribution to research in criminology in 2020. The Chosen Ones: Black Men and the Politics of Redemption analyzes ethnographic interviews with inner-city police officers and recordings of police encounters collected by and alongside law enforcement to investigate the reasons that violence persists in inner cities. "It’s an honor to receive the award and to be recognized by a community of my peers for my scholarly contribution to the discipline,” said Jones, "The award also comes in a year when I was recognized by the Graduate Assembly and the African American Student Development Office for my mentorship and support of graduate and undergraduate students. Each award recognizes an important part of who I am as a scholar, researcher and advocate.”
