Rakim Brooks

Rakim H. D. Brooks is the C. Edwin Baker Fellow for Democratic Values at Demos. His writing focuses on poverty and social policy, U. S. politics and political ideologies, and America's Progressive heritage of social justice. He received his A.B. from Brown University and M.Phil in Politics from Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. Fun Fact: Rakim has loved professional wrestling since he was a child. Even though he knows its all fake (and almost overwhelmingly superficial), he still manages to watch an episode every few months :P
