Amina Hassan, a distinguished alumna of the Media Arts & Studies Graduate Program at Ohio University, has authored the book Loren Miller: Civil Rights Attorney and Journalist, which will be released by the University of Oklahoma Press next Fall.
The work is a study of one of the nation’s most important but understudied civil rights attorneys. Miller was a legal strategist who challenged the nation’s racial order, effectively abolishing restrictive racial housing covenants before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Amina Hassan, who is now an independent historian and an award-winning public radio documentarian, has produced many nationally-distributed works including an NPR radio series on how race, class and gender shape American sport.
She has also covered important events around the world as a reporter and documentary producer. In Tehran, Iran she reported on the American hostage crisis. In addition to her master’s degree specializing in Public Media, she has also completed a PhD in Communication Studies at Ohio University.
