I am a PhD student in the Department of History at Cornell University. Focusing on Black American history following the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, I am particularly concerned with Black migratory communities relocating to the Southwestern US. I am interested in the cultural traditions Black communities brought to the Southwest in addition to themes of multiculturalism in the Southwest between Black migrants and indigenous and Mexican peoples.
