My work centers around the construct of Black Masculinity in the United States. I study ways by which Black Masculinity has been developed, how it can oppress Black Femininity and Non-Heteronormative identities, and analyzing inclusivity and its prevalence in society. My previous work has looked into misrepresentation and underreporting of academic success among Black Boys in American public school systems; and in the future, I will be studying Black Motherhood and whether social institutions attempt to repress or restrict the agency of Black Women.
