I am a historian specializing in 20th-century United States and African American history, with a focus on civil rights during the Cold War.

Teaching in the archives has helped me transform my history survey into a course that teaches students primary source analysis, research skills, and archival literacy in an engaging format. Original documents provide an invaluable tool for making history interesting, useful, and relevant for first-year students. Visiting the archives has also helped me become more experimental, creative, and flexible in the classroom.
