- Ph.D., American History, Labor and Ethnic Studies, Northern Illinois University, 1988.
I research, write about and teach African-American, ethnic, labor and civil rights studies, within the framework of U.S. history. From slavery to the present, my work explains some of the ways that struggles for equal rights and against racism are intertwined with workers' struggles for economic justice and a better society.
