About Me

Ph.D. Candidate at Rice University in Houston, Texas, studying African American History. Using oral history interviews my dissertation manuscript places the experiences of formerly incarcerated Black women in Texas within conversations about carceral reform and abolition.

Broad interests in African American Studies, Women and Gender Studies, and Carceral Studies. In 2022 I worked with the Tahirih Justice Center to develop an oral history project documenting the organization’s local history and community impact. In 2021 I conducted oral histories for MD Anderson’s Research Medical Library about their response to the COVID-19 pandemic and state violence against Black Americans.
