Positions

Overview

  • Scholarship I have researched and published extensively regarding topics related to urban education, Birmingham’s civil rights and education history, life course perspectives on African American education, and home, school, and community relations. I authored a groundbreaking book on education and civil rights entitled Schoolhouse Activists: African American Educators and the Long Birmingham Civil Rights Movement. Service I serve in local and national organizations dedicated to advancing urban education and quality of life, diversity and equity, and African American education. I am a founding committee member and former director of the UAB Center for Urban Education (CUE). Personal I admire the courage, sacrifice, and tenacity of leaders who dedicate their lives to advancing social justice and advocating for those deemed to be the proverbial “least of these” in our society.
