I am the African American Studies Librarian at the University of Florida’s George A. Smathers Libraries. I hold advanced degrees in Public History, African Studies, and Library Science from the University of Illinois. As the AAS librarian, 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 interests include the promotion of social change through indigenous knowledges, collective agency, and informal community organizations.

My most recent and ongoing research projects focus on the social economics of indigenous dress in East Africa, fashion activism in Africa, and transnational African Diasporic religions in the digital age.
