Now that I have earned my doctorate, to learn about my current activities visit,

I now look forward to using all my recently acquired knowledge of American History, the African American experience in the Far West, visual literacy and my enhanced skills in my new work endeavors. In collaboration with artists, scholars, other interested individuals and institutions, I intend to produce programming such as exhibits, events and publications to engage varied audiences.

I am now looking for these work opportunities to monetize my recent educational accomplishment in projects and employment positions in 2016 to engage people with overlooked stories about African Americans and other groups in California. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have leads on research, exhibits and/or public programming projects and funding opportunities you think I might be a fit for.

I am currently involved with research, development, preparation and delivery of public lectures, workshops and other education programming for varied audiences on American history and the African American experience.  I am pursuing full time public historian employment and consulting opportunities to share and reap the benefits of my newly acquired knowledge and enhanced skills as a recently minted Ph.D. to research, develop and deliver interpretation programming through public education programs, exhibits and events. My work as historian was recently featured in articles on and in the Los Angeles Times. To view these articles and other information about my activities, please visit my website at:
