I am interested in the intersections of American Race and Religion. These topics cross at every major turn in American history. I am mostly interested in the effects that the push for equality, demonstrated in the civil rights movement, had on American religion, namely evangelicalism. I am personally inspired by the resilience of 20th-century black protestants from both mainline and conservative Christian traditions, who have spearheaded movements towards racial and cultural diversity within American religion.
I am currently working on editing my dissertation, "From Every Tribe, Tongue, and Nation: The Role of Dallas Theological Seminary in Shaping African American Evangelicalism," into a book. I am also exploring how the experiences of Black Americans and their push for racial and cultural equality resonated with other oppressed groups around the world.
