Hello from me to you

2019 Headshot_a.pngI am the African American Studies Librarian at the University of Florida’s George A. Smathers Libraries. I work with UF students and faculty, as well as the general public to support curricular and independent research relating to Black cultures, histories, and experiences. My research focuses on two broad themes: the Black Digital Humanities and student-centered library instruction.



  • African American and Black Atlantic studies, histories, cultures, and literatures
  • Library and Interdisciplinary Instruction
  • Marketing, outreach, and programming
  • Community collaboration and engagement
  • Digital Humanities
  • Oral History
