Sheryll Cashin, law professor at Georgetown, writes about race relations and civil rights in America. Her new book, "Loving: Interracial Intimacy in America and The Threat to White Supremacy," was released for the 50th Anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Loving v. Virginia, which struck down bans on interracial marriage. In it she explores the history and future of interracial intimacy, how white supremacy was constructed and how "culturally dexterous" allies may yet kill it.
Her book, "Place Not Race," was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Non-Fiction in 2015. Her book, "The Failures of Integration," was an Editors' Choice in the New York Times Book Review. Cashin is also a two-time nominee for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for non-fiction (2005 and 2009). She has published widely in academic journals and written commentaries for the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Salon, The Root and other media.
