My research examines (1) the color line, particularly in relation to instances of boundary crossing via an examination of white entrance into race-based organizations; (2) the impact of racialization in family formation and processes, through an examination of transracial adoption; and (3) the racialization and gendered nature of sports, through an investigation of the reaction to black gymnasts.
