I am a first year doctoral student studying African American, United States and Comparative Black History. My research interests focus on the activism of Black women during the Civil Rights Movement and Black Power Movement. I am particularly interested in the activism of Black women in North Carolina and how race, gender, class and respectability influenced their activism and the subsequent commemoration of their activism. I am also interested in the use of oral history and other methods to address erasures and silences in the traditional archives concerning Black women.
