Biography

I am a committed Educator, Culture Worker, and Teaching Artist, and my work involves developing and facilitating learning enrichment opportunities that intersect literacy, culture, creative arts, critical media literacy, and historical and philosophical foundations. My research interests include culturally-responsive pedagogy, historical foundations, arts-based inquiry, and social & racial justice in education. Also, I am interested in understanding the development of multiple literacies (academic, cultural, critical) among learners, particularly Black males in urban contexts. In my work, I seek to interrogate, create, and leverage pedagogical and theoretical possibilities drawn from connections between Africana history, literature and culture, youth ‘life worlds’, and arts-based interventions in education.
