Jasmine B. King, Jackson State University

Jasmine B. King is a junior at Jackson State University majoring in political science. Since her freshman year, Jasmine has conducted research under the direction of Dr. Byron Orey at her Jackson State. Though the research that she participates in addresses the psycho-physiological reactions of African Americans in response to police violence, her current research interests focus on the effects of race, gender, and class inequalities on political behavior. Having a good deal of experience in research, Jasmine has presented research at conferences such as the Pi Sigma Alpha Undergraduate Student Research Conference and the Emerging Researchers National Conference. Jasmine plans to enter a dual degree program to earn a juris doctorate and a doctoral degree in Political Science.
