I am a cultural studies scholar devoted to the analysis of stories about kinship, solidarity, and betrayal in the midst of socio-historical violence, with an emphasis on the Black Diaspora and its connections with multiple communities. Since I can remember, I have loved reading and listening to stories. Now I document, trace, and analyze stories in literature, interviews, media, dances, mid-conversation, in a batey, in a marquesina, in a bus, anywhere a good story gets my attention.
