I'm a UK-based historian and writer, and the co-director of the Black Press Research Collective, based at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
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 dozens of academic articles and book chapters. I'm also a regular contributor to Black Perspectives, Slate, Nieman Reports, the Washington Post, and other popular media outlets.
