Research Summary

My research, teaching, and service are focused on understanding, contextualizing, and deconstructing the formal and informal educational experiences of marginalized youth, be they queer, urban, African-American, female, male, or a unification of these identities. My work is informed by critical pedagogy, critical race theory, and Black feminism with an aim to create innovative pedagogical practices through the use of non-traditional educational curricula (e.g., Hip Hop-based education, critical media literacy, Hip Hop feminism, and popular culture).
