Faces of CHJL - Gaye Theresa Johnson

Updated: Nov 10


Gaye Theresa Johnson is Associate Professor of Chicana/o and Central American Studies and Associate Director of the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at the University of California at Los Angeles. She writes and teaches on race, cultural politics, and freedom struggles. Gaye is a community-engaged scholar and participates as often as possible in advocacy work and organizing, primarily in farmworkers’, food justice, and housing struggles. She also consults with organizations and schools to help them increase their capacity and awareness of just work and classroom environments. Her proudest achievement is being a mother to her 10-year old daughter and being a part of the circle of friends and family that constitute the core of her life.


In this interview with CHJL's Co-Director, Sarah Jawaid, she shares about her sources of inspiration, true purpose, and her journey through our 9-month program.
