About Me

I research the role of civic voluntary organizations in shaping public schools and the school curriculum, with an emphasis on black civic organizations.  My scholarship also investigates the history of curriculum, with a particular emphasis on the area of history and social studies.  I am currently working on a book project on African American voluntary organizations during the Jim Crow era.
