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