I am a historian with research interests in comparative race relations (Brazil and the United States), the Black consciousness movement in Brazil, the history of African American women in the United States, and the Black women's movement in Brazil. At Long Island University Brooklyn Campus I teach World Civilizations to 1500, World Civilizations since 1500, Latin American History, Comparative Slavery and Freedom (focusing on the United States, Cuba, and Brazil); Latin America in World History, and History of African-American Women in the United States.

Visiting the archives allows me to introduce first-year students to the actual practice of history. Rather than simply reading about runaway slaves or the NAACP’s anti-lynching campaign in their textbooks, my students have the opportunity to “do the work” of historians and interact with primary documents. This helps them develop a greater appreciation for the subject matter and the process of archival research.
