Judith Williams is a third-year Ph.D. student in sociocultural anthropology. A former chef and caterer, her research interests involve food labor, racial hierarchy, colorism, and the negotiation of racial inequalities. Her dissertation will explore the practices, traditions and socio-cultural beliefs, that reproduce and justify continued anti-black discrimination, within Miami’s restaurant industry, as well as the ways in which this discrimination is resisted and contested.
