Sharon Washington, Ph. D.
Sharon Washington is an anthropologist who has traveled the world exploring human capacity as imagination. She attended Columbia University and The New School For Social Research in New York City and speaks regularly at universities and conferences on issues of social justice, race, economic insecurity, education, and media influences. Her PhD dissertation, "The Educational Contract," recounts her travels in the U.S., Sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America. Sharon currently lives in Houston, Texas and has written for the Dallas Times Herald, New York Newsday, and the Akron Beacon Journal. Two of those papers have succumbed to the inevitable future of newspapers, which is disappearing as fast as ice cream in a hot sunny Texas town.
