Curriculum Vitae


What Does African American American Studies Mean to You?

"It is the study of those who made America great but were never rewarded for their labors— slaves, washer-women, factory workers, caretakers, porters, sharecroppers, hepcats, teachers,  B-boys, line cooks and countless unknown rebels.  African American Studies is the study of power and social struggle, and speculation on what it takes to create a more just society."--Cedric Johnson
