Student's Published Book Review Addresses Voter Exclusion

University of Houston-Downtown criminal justice student Gregory J. Fremin wrote a scholarly book review of Pippa Holloway's "Living in Infamy" under the direction of faculty member Michael Cavanaugh. The review was published by the Journal of Qualitative Criminal Justice and Criminology in their Oct. 2014 issue.

The review analyzes the book's treatment of "how America came to utilize felony convictions as a societal class preservation tool to exclude African Americans from voting," particularly in the deep South.

Fremin and fellow UHD student Lupe Hernandez have been invited to present their abstracts at the 2015 annual meeting of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in Orlando.
