I am a scholar whose research crosses into the realms of developmental psychology, health, education, and Black studies. In the pursuit of racial equity, I write, lecture, and study how racism, gender, and culture affect well-being throughout the lifespan. Most of my research is on African Americans, however, I also examine how White families socialize their children on race and racism.
I often provide insight to local and national media outlets on a wide range of issues that deal with Black youth & families, race & racism, health, and education. As a public speaker, I share my ideas through lectures, panels, and workshops in university, hospital (grand rounds), community, school, corporate, and church settings.
