Danielle Howard (Philosophy)
Outstanding Student in the Humanities
Danielle Howard is very passionate about finding ways to eradicate racial and social injustices. To begin racialized healing and abolishing systematic racism, she believes we must start in our classrooms with the teaching of truthful history and critical thinking so we can start changing racist laws and policies. Her goal is to reform our K-12 education system by removing the sanitized history that is taught, replacing it with an accurate narrative of the genesis of America. Danielle’s senior thesis explains how our education system upholds Charles Mills's Racial Contract.
