My Reads.

I love experimenting with new books in the classroom. Some of the books that we are exploring are:

Saidiya Hartman’s Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social Upheaval


Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers’ They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South


LaShawn Harris' Sex Workers, Psychics, and Numbers Runners: Black Women in New York City's Underground Economy.

I also enjoy experimenting with media and lyrical texts to help students understand the relevance and application of feminist theories. Some of the media texts that we are exploring are:

  • Issa Rae’s “Insecure”

  • “Bessie” HBO movie

  • “The Shop” HBO series

  • “Surviving R. Kelly” Lifetime series

  • “The Foxy Five” YouTube series

  • Billy Porter’s “Pose” Netflix series

  • “Queen Sugar” Oprah Winfrey Network

  • Solange Knowles’ “When I Get Home”

  • Beyonce Knowles’ “Homecoming”
