Survivor

“Behold, I am doing a new thing…” Isaiah 43:19

I am a public scholar and creative from rural Tennessee where members of my family were once enslaved - and are survivors of the Jim Crow era. I earned my B.A. in History from Fordham University and my M.A. in Public Humanities (American Studies) from Brown University (2019).

My career to date includes work in education, artist management and cultural organizations. I have produced public programs on the public history of American slavery and the formerly enslaved. I have also presented at the United Nations, various schools and universities. My additional interests include racial reconciliation, photography and filmmaking.
