When and why do social movements coalesce to produce dramatic change? How are social movements institutionalized and what is gained and lost in that process? What happens in their aftermath? These are questions that animate my scholarship and teaching. My research encompasses African American history, urban and gender studies, and globalization. I'm revising a manuscript on the relationship between the Black Freedom Movement, community economic development, and urban neoliberalism since the 1960s.
