I hold a PhD from New York University in English and American literature, with an Advanced Certificate in Museum Studies also from NYU. I have held a Rockefeller Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Womanist Studies Center at the University of Georgia and two National Endowment Fellowships for College Teachers, one at the Center for the Study of Women and Men at the University of Southern California, the other at Bennett College (one of two historically black women’s colleges in the nation). I have served as a Fellow for the National Center for Human Rights Education. At the Ford Foundation, I was also a Colloquia Fellow on gender in African American Communities. In addition to a number of articles related to gender progressive manhood and pro-feminist pedagogy, my publications include Black Male Outsider a Memoir: Teaching as a Pro-Feminist Man (the State University of New York Press, 2008) and Womanist Forefathers: Frederick Douglass and W.E.B. Du Bois (2009).
