Jameelah Imani Morris is a PhD Candidate in Social and Cultural Anthropology at Stanford University. Her dissertation research investigates the impacts of state violence on Black communities, and responses to them, across generations in Colombia. Against the backdrop of neoliberal tourism development in Cartagena, it examines gendered anti-Black state violence and intergenerational social movements as processes that produce Black youth as political subjects. Her work has been supported by the Social Science Research Council and Fulbright-Hays Program.

She received her B.A. in International Relations and Spanish from Tufts University and M.A. in Anthropology from Stanford University.
