WORK IN PROGRESS
I am currently revising a manuscript for publication which explores the history of generational conflict within Anglo-American feminism from the 1870s to the 1930s, focusing in particular on the deep connections between age prejudice and racial prejudice in arguments for women’s empowerment.
Co-editor with LaKisha Simmons, The Global History of Black Girlhood: Recent Findings and New Directions. Twelve essays by scholars, activists, and artists that place the emerging field of black girls’ history in a global framework.
Invited co-editor with Lakisha Simmons, special issue of Women, Gender, and Families of Color.
