GSS Adjunct Professor Antoine Lovell Featured in ABC Documentary


GSS Adjunct Professor and Doctoral Candidate Antoine Lovell is being featured in an ABC documentary airing this week titled: Our America: Living While Black. According to, the five-part docuseries will air every day this week, culminating in a 60-minute documentary this weekend — and will “go beyond the statistics to explore inequalities facing Black families across the country in institutions related to policing, health care, education and housing.”

In a feature article on Lovell, ABC7 had this to say:

For a time as a youth, Antoine Lovell, now a doctoral candidate and a university professor, was homeless in New York, riding the subways with his mom for shelter. His bedroom was the No. 3 train.

It was an experience that shaped his life. The course of his life was sealed when a social worker helped him, and he decided he’d do that kind of work, too, one day. He is now a professor at Fordham University in Manhattan as well as Delaware State University, where he teaches social policy. His specialty? Housing and homelessness, the core issues he’s been wrestling with from a young age.
