In this edition of the Philippe Matthews Show LIVE, Dr. Battalora discusses “Whiteness Biography” as a another means to identify and critique whiteness.


Dr. Jacqueline Battalora is an attorney and professor of sociology and criminal justice at Saint Xavier University in Chicago. She is the author of the 2013 book “Birth of A White Nation: The Invention of White People and it's Relevance Today.” (http://goo.gl/q3eRCW).

As an anti-racist writer, educator, and trainer, she teaches courses in law and society having received her Ph.D from Northwestern University where her research was shaped by an interest in the social forces that make deep human connections across race so difficult to sustain. Her graduate training includes: theology, social ethics, sociology, and law.

Battalora’s approach to white awareness training is enhanced by employment experience that includes educator, corporate attorney, Chicago police officer, and coffeehouse co-owner. Her writings explore the enforcement of divisions between people specifically, the making of human difference in law.

Dr. Battalora was born in Scotland and lived in Belgium for six years before her family relocated to Victoria, Texas. The experience of attending high school & middle school in Texas formed her understanding of race in America. Dr. Battalora speaks widely on the topic of the invention of white people in law and has been conducting white awareness & anti-racist training sessions since the mid 1990s. She has trained teachers as well as lawyers, judges, activists, corporate and law enforcement officials on the legal historical record of white privilege and its implications for work conducted today.
