The Uppity Negro graduated from Fisk University, after spending three years at Dillard University prior to Hurricane Katrina. He is a recent graduate of the Interdenominational Theological Center with dual masters degrees. He is also a musician, and an armchair cultural critic in the area of race, religion and politics with the hope of advancing both the Black community and humanity at large. He hopes to promote a militant intellectualism that is a
brand of intellectual prowess that attempts to broaden the discussion and raise awareness simultaneously. Militant intelligence is diametrically opposed to mediocrity and believes that “change does not roll on the wheels of inevitability.” This intellectual power would rather see people fight with words and ideas to inspire change rather engaging in bellicose behavior that results in the loss of human life.
Currently, he resides in New Orleans.

Keep it uppity and keep it truthfully radical, JLL
