Walter Greason is among the most prominent historians, educators, and urbanists in the United States. He has spent the past 30 years speaking to audiences in dozens of states, on over 100 college and high school campuses, at dozens of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the country.


Walter’s digital humanities projects, “The Wakanda Syllabus” and “The Racial Violence Syllabus”, produced global responses in the last three years. In the wake of the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, “The Racial Violence Syllabus” attracted over 4 million individual uses, was translated into seven languages, and inspired projects like the Oscar-winning film “BlackKklansman.” The 2016 “Wakanda Syllabus” defined Afrofuturism as one of the core themes of media convergence and was a crucial element in the public acclaim that supported Marvel Studios’ Oscar-winning feature film, “Black Panther.” Walter currently writes about the racial wealth gap and the patterns of economic globalization. He graduated from Villanova University in 1995 before completing his doctoral research on suburbanization at Temple University in 2004. His social justice work began with training by Otty Nxumalo, Director-General of KwaZulu-Natal under Nelson Mandela, and has continued through projects with Maya Angelou, Cornel West, Toni Morrison, Desmond Tutu, Sonia Sanchez, Amiri Baraka, Robin D.G. Kelley, Farah Jasmine Griffin, Ken Bain, Dwayne McDuffie, Christopher Priest, Ruha Benjamin, John Jennings, David Blight, James Oliver Horton, Angel David Nieves, and Kim Gallon.
