The Basics

I live in Providence, Rhode Island.  I teach and talk and write about the complexities of race and nation in American life.  I also care a great deal about higher education, the humanities, and public culture.

More specifically, I am an historian of the nineteenth-century and twentieth-century United States and the Americas, and work at Brown University in the departments of Africana Studies and American Studies.
