Timothy Haslett - Julia's older brother

Tim Haslett was a black studies scholar, activist, and music journalist who brought attention to obscure bands ignored by the mainstream. He earned his B.A. in African-American Studies at Brandeis University and his M.A. in Africana Studies at NYU. His masters thesis on slavery and trans-generational haunting can be found here. In the 1990s, he co-founded the highly influential black cultural studies website used by scholars and students around the world.
