I analyze what comprises Black Masculinity and the cultures of racial & ethnic groups oppressed in the United states. With inspirations drawn from Black Feminisms and Womanism, my research identifies institutional factors that either impede or compliment a holistic learning, playing, and communicative experience specifically in the American city- and non-American cities post dissertation. My previous work includes the misrepresentation and underreporting of academic success among Black Boys in American public school systems, as well as newspaper coverage of mass killers and how we discuss identity and motivation in terrorist cases.
