Essays and Presentations

I began researching race relations in the South in the early 1990s. Since then, I have received a master’s degree in U.S. History from the University of Maine. I have presented my history scholarship and creative writing about lynching in the Department of History, University of Maine, in 1999; Roads to Salvation, the 2000 annual meeting of the Arkansas Historical Association; PechaKucha Night – Bangor (Maine) Volume 1, in 2011; Identity • Memory • Testimony, the 2012 Spring Academic Conference of the Maine Women Writers Collection/Maine Women’s Studies Consortium/New England Women’s Studies Association at the University of New England; and at Without Sanctuary: A Conference on Lynching in the American South at the Center for the Study of the New South, University of North Carolina – Charlotte.

In February 2013, I joined filmmaker George Fulton Jr. in presenting Project 1927 at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, Little Rock, Arkansas.

My history work has been published by Khronikos, Department of History, University of Maine, in the Premier Issue in 2000; on America’s Black Holocaust Museum; and in the Bangor Daily News.

The specific focus of my research has been the lynching of John Carter in Little Rock, Arkansas, 1927. Read about it in John Carter: Scapegoat for Anger. Read about why I’m studying and writing about John Carter’s story in Inheriting Home: The Skeletons in Pa’s Closet.
