ABOUT FELICIA "Dr. DETROIT" GEORGE
I am a proud product of Detroit. I graduated from Cass Technical High School in 1991 before obtaining degrees from Wayne State University as both a “Tartar” and a “Warrior.” With three degrees from the country’s best urban university, I consider myself a Wayne Stater through and through. Did I mention I LOVE my university? I graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology. While working on my degree, I was fortunate enough to conduct psychopharmacology research for two years. In 2000, I obtained my Master of Interdisciplinary Studies degree, and completed my thesis on the war on drugs and its effect on African-American males. In August of 2015, after completing my dissertation on numbers gambling in Detroit, I was awarded my PhD in Anthropology.
I have worked in the law enforcement field for more than 20 years, and have been a part-time faculty member at Wayne State University teaching Introduction of Anthropology and Business Anthropology since 2010.
