"The Stickup Kids”


A Conversation with Randol Contreras

 

Dr. Randol Contreras is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto, Mississauga. He is a South Bronx native and received his Ph.D. from The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. His multiple award-winning book, The Stickup Kids: Race, Drugs, Violence, and the American Dream, is based on field research he conducted on violent drug robbers, who robbed upper-level dealers storing large amounts of drugs and cash. His larger goal is to use ethnography to reveal and explain the human pain and suffering prevalent in marginal urban areas.


For more information, please contact Dr. Yolanda C. Martin, Criminal Justice Program Coordinator, at ymartin@bmcc.cuny .edu, or (212) 220-8000 Ext. 5274.
