Academic Interests and Plans
I am currently completing a book-length manuscript that looks at how socioeconomic status impacts the racial and ethnic identities of second generation West Indians. I also have several projects in progress: I am conducting qualitative interviews for my project that examines the role that race and ethnicity play in the lives of the diasporic West Indian community who reside in North America and Europe. Finally, I am investigating the racial and ethnic interactions between West Indians and African Americans in New Jersey.
