I understand teaching and learning as “r/evolutionary acts”* and engage graduate and undergraduate students in the radical art of thinking. As a scholar, I utilize an interdisciplinary lens (history, ethics, theology, cultural studies, anthropology, ethnography) to engage complex and critical topics. I am a religions scholar, who has been accused of being a social historian. I am dedicated to context. My scholarly explorations include but are not limited to: the religious and social lives of African Americans and Africans in the Diaspora; women and gender and justice; and issues of human rights. I attended the ARIL summer Colloquium in 2000 and have been involved with Crosscurrents and ARIL ever since.
