My research interests include the African American experience, particularly Black American Athletes, Black Writers, and the Tulsa Race Riot. I have published articles on Richard Wright and White patrons, Ralph Ellison and the U.S. Communist Party, the Harlem Renaissance, and, race and gender in sport. I have given public lectures on Athea Gibson's integration of tennis and Black American athletes at the 1960 Olympics. I serve as the Oklahoma Humanities Council's State Scholar for the National Smithsonian's Museum on Main St.: "Hometown Teams," a traveling exhibit on sports and American culture from 2013-2016.

And, I have presented research on the national response to the Tulsa Race Riot at professional conferences.
