About Me

I’m currently an Associate Professor at the University of Delaware. I’ve written a book on race and culture in the Negro Leagues (The Set Up Men) and have published articles on eugenics & film and race & adoption.  I’m currently working on a study of teenage daughter characters in 1950s sitcoms.
