Areas of Interest and Research:
Primary focus is on redressing issues of equity and social justice especially within the historical discourse of Adult Education particularly as it relates to race. Through the use of race-based theoretical frameworks such as Africentric Philosophical Theory and Critical Race Theory and the use of qualitative and historical methodology
I integrate issues of educational equity among African American adult learners through historical projects focusing on the 1920-1950 time frame; through informal learning experiences such as Hip Hop and the Spoken Word; and through research on African American doctoral student persistence.
