Volume 4, Issue 1 (2015)

Letter from the Editor-in-Chief


I would like to thank all of those who supported the Tennessee Journal of Race, Gender, & Social Justice throughout the past four years. This current issue tackles a variety of subject areas, including gender, sexuality, and racial discrimination, and features an article from Professor Jill Engle, keynote speaker of our Continuing Legal Education program on domestic violence.

As our journal enters into its fifth year, our staff will strive to continue our founders' goals of shedding light on issues of race, gender, and social justice throughout the state of Tennessee and our nation. We hope you enjoy this issue.

Best regards,

Brianna R. Powell
