Dr. Chavis is a writer, filmmaker, activist and professor. He is the author of the groundbreaking book, The Silent Shore: The Lynching of Matthew Williams and the politics of Racism in the Free State, which was praised by Sherrilyn Ifill, President NAACP-LDF, as a story that “resonates with power and caution for our contemporary efforts to address racial violence and discrimination.” The Silent Shore is currently being adapted into a documentary series.
