|Location||Atlanta, GA, United States|
|Introduction||I am a literary fiction writer, essayist, professor, and scholar of English and Literature. I am primarily an Americanist with degrees in American literature and American culture. I teach college Composition, Rhetoric, and Literature. Many of my posts and much of my fiction interrogate the notion of race in America. Since one of my primary interests is black female identity, I also discuss the politics of black women's hair. I display my work in a way that I hope inspires readers to think and write. It is my hope that this space will serve as both a source of discussion and reference for my colleagues and my students about language and literature as well as discourse about society, culture, rhetoric, and the human condition.|
