biography

Taya M Graham - As a graduate student of Towson University's Women's Studies Leadership and Public Policy program, Taya applies her academic perspective to reporting on politics and racial injustice in Maryland. She has authored and contributed several papers on the cultural, social and political marginalization of African American women through racialized policing and policy implementation. She has lectured at institutions as diverse as University of Pennsylvania Law School and Baltimore's Bryn Mawr School, nurturing a dialog on related social tensions and institutional biases. Taya's field work and outreach to empower women have gained her YANA's (You Are Never Alone) "Love in Action" award in 2011 and the "Torch Bearers" award in 2013 from the Coalition of 100 Black Women. She is a regular contributor to First Edition with Sean Yoes on Morgan State Radio.
