Biography

I am a joint Ph.D. student in U.S. History and Educational Policy Studies who focuses on the history of education and public schooling in the United States. My research centers on the intersection of race, education, and historical memory. I am interested in Americans’ contestation over the role of race and racism in their recollections of the past, particularly regarding the history of school desegregation.
