Project Description

Justis Malker recently completed his second year at UNC-Chapel Hill where he is studying History, Statistics, and African American studies. During his time at UNC thus far, Justis has been involved with UNC Cypher (a freestyle rap group), Student Hip Hop Organization (SHHO), Black Student Movement (BSM), and the Campus Y’s Cube 5.0 Cohort.

Justis’ passions lie in culture, art, sports, politics, and the interplay between these four areas of interest. He is particularly interested in and passionate about social justice and education inequalities. During his bridge year, Justice is working towards planting seeds both at his placement(s) and at UNC and expanding his personal horizons while experiencing and learning from different cultures. Justis is currently exploring service placement options with 826LA, Die Jim Crow, Prison Library Project, and Homeboy Industries for his bridge year with the ‘20-’21 cohort.
