I am a doctoral candidate in History at the Johns Hopkins University. My research interests include racism and real estate in the United States, environmental history, food history, and the politics of public memory. I recently co-curated the award-winning Food for the People: Eating and Activism in Greater Washingtonexhibition at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum. As an organizational strategist I help non-profits like DC Greens and Globemed walk the path of anti-racism and develop strategies for being accountable to the communities impacted by their work.
Prince George's County, MD raised me, but I call D.C.'s Anacostia neighborhood home.
