I'm a UK-based historian and writer. I currently work at the University of York, UK, where I'm a Lecturer in Modern US History.
My work focuses primarily on histories of the Black press and Black Chicago. More broadly, I'm interested in the connections between popular history, race, media, and visual culture in and beyond the modern United States.
I'm the author of three books and more than two-dozen academic articles and book chapters. I'm also a regular contributor to Black Perspectives, Slate, the Washington Post, and other popular media outlets.
