Ph.D., Yale University, 2009
My research examines the significance of evangelicalism in the cultural and political developments of African diaspora. I am also a historian of religion in the post-emancipation United States. My current research project studies the contested ends of the transatlantic slave trade in African American missions to colonial Africa.
