I study memoir as a genre of Black women's intellectual history. Specifically, I examine how Black women write about health and wellness (inner peace) and human rights (outer peace). My work posits Black women writers as literary mentors for empowerment and social justice. Grounded in humanities areas of Black studies, women's studies, and history, my research is inherently interdisciplinary.
