Emerald Jones

Emerald Jones, Ph.D., is a tenure track assistant professor of criminal justice at Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University. Her research—which focuses on mass incarceration, social inequality, racial discrimination, and occupational inequality—explores how race and gender play a major role in the judicial system. Dr. Jones’s extensive research, including her analysis of data from the New York City Police Department, has led to significant findings. Her work indicates that young and older Black women are disproportionately stopped, questioned, and frisked compared to White women. Dr. Jones’s academic journey includes a doctoral degree from Howard University, focusing on criminology and social inequality, a master’s degree in sociology from Fayetteville State University, and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Fayetteville State University.
