Professional Bio

My research focus is at the intersection of 19th century African American Literature, 19th century Black Print Culture, and Black Digital Humanities, with a particular concentration on Black women's writing and organizing during the nineteenth and early twentieth-century.

In my capacity as research assistant for Dr. Shirley Moody-Turner, I have helped organize the Cooper-Du Bois Mentoring Program in 2019 and again in 2020. From 2019-2020 I was Project Manager for Douglass Day 2020, an annual global crowd-sourcing event centering transcription, reading, and public engagement with Black Archives. Along with my project management duties, I am well-versed in Zooniverse as a platform for transcribing archival materials and helped to design the transcription program for Douglass Day 2020.

As a Center for Black Digital Research Fellow, I have served as Project Coordinator for the Cooper-Du Bois Mentoring Program and Project Coordinator for the Black Women's Organizing Archive (BWOA), the latter of which seeks to find the scattered archives of nineteenth-century Black women organizers.
