Dr. Frank Roberts is a political organizer on the frontlines of the blacklivesmatter movement. Recently referred to by Dr. Cornel West as one of the young “powerhouse intellectuals” of his generation, Frank has been an active organizer on the ground both in Ferguson and throughout New York City. He is currently on the faculty at New York University, where he teaches the nation's first Black Lives Matter course. 

He is the co-founder (with CNN contributor Keith Boykin) of the National Black Justice Coalition based in Washington, DC. Frank is also the creator of BlackLivesMatterSyllabus.com, a national online resource that educates the public on the history of the blacklivesmatter movement and provides tools for teaching BLM in classroom settings. 

A New York City native, he attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and Yale University, and now calls Harlem home.
