I'm Curator for the Oral History Archives at Columbia University’s Rare Book & Manuscript Library. I have a master’s of information science, specializing in archives, preservation and social computing from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and a doctorate from the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Emory University in Atlanta.

My research and publication areas are born-digital materials, artists’ studio archives, social media, social movements, and television studies as they intersect with race, gender, and sexuality. My publications include Living for the Revolution, Black Feminist Organizations, 1968-1980 (Duke University Press, 2005), Still Lifting, Still Climbing: African-American Women’s Contemporary Activism (New York University Press, 1999), Stories of Oprah: the Oprahfication of American Culture (University of Mississippi Press, 2010) and articles in several journals and edited volumes.
