Radical Prohibition: African Americans Writing Race and the Anti-Drink Movement (1860-1919). Literary history project examining temperance work and writings by African American activists. Placing the anti-drink agenda in consonant with the discourses of anti-slavery, racial and gender equality, African American activists created a radical rhetoric of temperance that negotiated the politics of race with struggles for moral reform. I received the American Fellowship from the American Associate of University Women and a Summer Stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities to conduct research on this project.
Victory, Victory Shall Be Mine: Justice and Redemption and the Gospel Aesthetic in African American Culture. Interdisciplinary work that identifies a Gospel aesthetic as a parallel to the Blues aesthetic. This aesthetic is evident in African American literature and music and operates as cultural critique by which African Americans interrogate and negotiate racial and social injustices.
