Marcus Board Jr., Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Howard University in Washington D.C. and author of Invisible Weapons (Oxford 2022). His research engages social movements, radical Black feminist theories of power, and public opinion.

Marcus' community work has grown over the past twenty years, building politically and personally connected communities while advocating for youth empowerment, abolition, and systemic accountability.

Invisible Weapons examines revolutionary politics during the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), asking why so few movement supporters reflect the Black queer and intersectional feminism of M4BL organizers.
