Breastfeeding, Race, and Injustice with Andrea Freeman - Episode 28
Play • 32 min

Andrea Freeman studies the intersection of critical race and class theory with issues of food policy, health, feminism, and consumer credit. Many of her articles explore her pioneering theory of food oppression, which examines how facially neutral food-related law, policy, and government action disproportionately harm marginalized communities. She also studies the effects of racism by credit card companies against consumers. Freeman teaches Constitutional Law, Federal Courts, and Race and Law at the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law. She is a member of the ACLU of Hawaii Litigation Committee and received the Community Faculty of the Year award in 2015.
