I have published two books. Remaking Respectability: African American Women in Interwar Detroit was published by the University of North Carolina Press in 2001. Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters: The Struggle Over Segregated Recreation in America was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2012. My current research examines the emergence of experimental interracial communities in mid-twentieth century America and their influence on the long civil rights movement. Tentatively title, Living in the Future: The Utopian Strain in the Long Civil Rights Movement, this manuscript is currently very much a work in progress. I am also researching the life of an African American pacifist and civil rights activist, Eroseanna Robinson, and will publish a short book contextualizing her remarkable life during the cold war.
