About meI am an Associate Professor of History at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa. I specialize in African-American Studies and American Civilization.
About my libraryAlthough my main interests center around the social sciences and cultural studies, I also enjoy classic literature, historical fiction, and mysteries (fictional and non-fiction).
