I am a historical sociologist who studies the politics of race.

This site focuses primarily on my scholarly work, but also includes some journalistic writing and original music.

Links to my two books can be found below.



I am currently working on a third book, which examines the tensions between New York City’s progressive self-image and its longstanding failure to address inequality and segregation in its educational system.

Article on Freedom Schools in Prince Edward County, VA

This article examines Freedom Schools launched in Prince Edward County, Virginia, during the Summer of 1963. This article can be read as something of an addendum to Southern Stalemate, which only briefly touches upon Prince Edward Freedom Schools.
