I am an historian of education in training at the University of Virginia. My research interests include: the Black freedom struggle, school desegregation, and urban education. Tentatively titled "The Urban School District in the People's Mind: Race, Perceptions, and Education Reform in the Age of Accountability, 1973-1988," my dissertation exposes the origins of the age of accountability in American educational reform. In my free time, I enjoy reading and writing, spending time with friends and family, traveling the world, and following the Seattle sports scene.
