Undergraduate Interns

Jeremiah Baldwin is a fourth-year student triple majoring in African and African Diaspora Studies, Government, and Rhetoric and Writing with double minors in LGBTQ/Sexualties Studies and Educational Psychology. Baldwin is intrigued by the intersections of race, sexuality, and the law, specifically by the ways that legal systems interpret, handle, and impact Black gay men. Baldwin's work consists of him using an intersectional approach to deconstruct the single-axis framework that inflicts institutional harm upon Black LGBTQ+ persons. Baldwin is currently completing his Liberal Arts Honors capstone project where he is researching how HIV/AIDS has been strategically attached to the Black gay man's person and is using his research findings to influence the planning of his university-wide event aimed at preventing and treating HIV/AIDS, as well as remembering those lost to HIV/AIDS-related illnesses.

Baldwin enjoys community building and picnics at Zilker Park and intends to become a practicing civil rights lawyer. Outside of being an intern with the Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, Baldwin is a Rapoport Service Scholar and participated in the inaugural Amos C. Brown Student Fellowship to Ghana powered by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the nation's oldest civil rights organization.
