Research

My family stories and experiences in Atlanta and Detroit shaped my interest in researching and writing about the connections between the migrations and labor resistance of domestic workers and African American clubwomen. It is important to me to produce collaborative and accessible scholarship. I am involved in multiple public history projects. I have also authored articles and op-eds to circulate research about African American women's labor histories inside and outside of academia.
