What I do

I am the archivist and lead researcher for the Slavery, Colonialism, and Their Legacies at Tufts initiative, a university-wide collaborative project examining the school's historical ties to enslavement in Massachusetts and beyond, the long presence and experiences of African descended and indigenous students on the university‚Äôs campuses, and Tufts' relationships with the historic Black and Afro-Native communities of Charlestown, Medford, Somerville, Boston, and Grafton.
