I am currently studying the African-American freedom movement in Southwest Georgia, concentrating primarily on the mid to late twentieth century period. My 2011 master's thesis at the University of Houston was titled "Redefining Success: The Struggle for Freedom Rights in Southwest Georgia, 1962-1985." I received my B.A. from the University of North Texas in 2008.
