I write about music, history, and culture, both as a scholar and as a critic. I am a Lecturer on History and Literature at Harvard University.
I recently completed a PhD in American Studies and African American Studies at Yale University. My dissertation, titled “High Culture on the Lower Frequencies: African Americans and Opera, 1900-1933,” is a study of radical engagements with the art form of opera among early-twentieth-century African American performers, composers, and critics. While at Yale, I also earned a master’s concentration in Public Humanities.
