Pearl K. Ford Dowe, assistant professor of political science

Dowe’s research interests include African-American political behavior, the intersection of race and class, and electoral behavior. She is editor of a book published by Mercer University Press, African Americans in Georgia: A Reflection of Politics and Policy in the New South, in which she provides a comprehensive study of the impact of structural and historic racism on the implementation of public policy and on political climate in Georgia.

“The data confirms that African-Americans are politically and socially conscious regardless of which region they reside in.”
