I earned my BA from Brown University in African American Studies and then worked for many years as a community and labor organizer in Rhode Island, primarily with SEIU 1199NE. I now live in Dorchester, MA and I am a PhD student in Political Science at Boston University. My research interests are related to social movements, race and class in the US, and political thought. I have published some essays. Occasionally I blog about things I read or watch. I’m also on Twitter.
