Myisha Cherry is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Riverside. Her research interest lies at the intersection of moral psychology and social and political philosophy. More specifically she is interested in the role of emotions and attitudes in public life. Her books include The Moral Psychology of Anger co-edited with Owen Flanagan (Rowman and Littlefield, 2018), Unmuted: Conversations on Prejudice, Oppression, and Social Justice (Oxford University Press, 2019), and The Case for Rage: Why Anger is Essential to Anti-Racist Struggle (Oxford University Press, 2021). And after a 10-way auction, Princeton University Press won North American rights to her book “The Failures of Forgiveness.” It is slated for a Spring 2023 release. Professor Cherry has also written about emotions and race in such journals as Hypatia, Radical Philosophy Review, and Critical Philosophy of Race. She is also the host of the UnMute Podcast, a podcast where she interviews philosophers about the social and political issues of our day.
