Bio

My teaching and research is focused on the language, literacy, and culture of African-Americans. I welcome students from all different majors and backgrounds to do research with me. The different perspectives that you bring enrich the study of African-American language and the education of African-Americans happens in all contexts!

In the next few years, I plan to write a book and several articles on language and culture in postsecondary contexts, with a focus on supporting the social and academic experiences of African-American students on university campuses. The book “Talking College” will include survey and interview materials. This book is a direct response to a request that my undergraduate advisor, the late Calvert Watkins made to me for such work in my junior year of college. He believed that a comprehensive examination of how African-American students lived and learned on college campuses would answer long-standing questions of the nature of both the linguistic idiolects of individuals in highly unique situations and also provide information on how to best support and empower the African-American academic speech community.
