Leaders in the Academy Spotlight on Cori Tucker 2012 Doctoral Fellow

“If you stay committed to a particular calling…those things that seem uncertain will be added on to you, and you will be able to act as an agent to allocate knowledge, wisdom and resources to others.”

For Cori Tucker, the place where study, culture and religion intersect has directed her personal life and work as a Doctoral Fellow. She pursues the question of how religion operates as a rubric for social transformation. In particular, she is becoming an expert on the way in which African American pioneers participated in the Great Migration, and how religion guided the social movement of that time and the generations since.
