I am an historian of education in training at the University of Virginia. My research interests include: the Black freedom struggle, public pedagogy, educational leadership, and urban/metropolitan education reform. Tentatively titled "The Urban School District in the People's Mind: Race, Public Pedagogy, and Education Reform in Post-Civil Rights Movement Atlanta, 1973-1988," my dissertation examines how individuals and groups of individuals influenced, contested, and/or maintain the public image of the Atlanta Public Schools during the tenure of the district's first Black superintendent. In my free time, I enjoy reading and writing, spending time with friends and family, traveling the world, and following the Seattle sports scene.
