Dr. Allison Clark

Featured Speaker

As an African American cisgender female, she recognized the traditional systems and methodologies used to microtarget members of the Black and African American communities failed to provide context for a deeper understanding of the members of these communities. Towards this end, she founded Black & Blu Research, LLC, a boutique research agency specializing in the intersectionality of data, race, gender and politics.

Prior to establishing Black & Blu Research, LLC, Dr. Clark was the Deputy Director of State Voices’ Florida 501c3 Table, where she successfully oversaw the voter registration of over 300,000 people of color.

In 2016, she led Faith In Florida Action’s education and field organizing efforts for the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s race. This educational campaign led to the defeat of the 16-year incumbent.

She is a Florida native and a graduate of the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Advertising and a Doctor of Philosophy in Media from Michigan State University. She has enjoyed experimenting with gluten free cooking and dancing to DJ D-Nice during the COVID 19 lockdown.
