I am an assistant professor in history at Auburn University with specializations in African American History, as well as political, labor, urban and cultural history. I completed a PhD in History at the University of Michigan. My research interests include African American history, political economy, labor, social movements and activism, the carceral state and hip hop culture.  I am working on a book, tentatively titled, The Quest for Democracy: Black Power, New Left, and Progressive Politics in the Post-Industrial Midwest, which analyzes movements against the criminal state and campaigns for economic democracy after 1967.
