Mindelyn Buford II is an assistant professor of sociology. She earned her Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University. Her scholarship lies at the intersection of race and migration, which she engages to examine diverse black experiences and processes of social inequality and mobility. These interests are reflected in her ongoing research projects on new African immigrants in U.S. society and her teaching experience in immigration, race and ethnic relations, and social stratification. Current manuscripts examine new African immigrants’ structural assimilation into the U.S. black middle class, the diverse class origins of new African immigrants, African international students’ access to Western colleges and universities, and mental health stressors among voluntary African immigrants. Professor Buford’s research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes for Health, and Northeastern Provost’s Office.
