My journey as a scholar began with my deep fascination with Black history. I am a historian who researches the obscured history of Black people here in the United States and abroad. In the past few years, I added the field of digital humanities tools to my research to broaden and illuminate innovative ways to disseminate historical knowledge and make it accessible in new formats for public facing scholarship.
