My primary work focuses on the circulation and formation of race and postcolonial identity through public address, especially visual and design culture in Africa and the United States.

I teach undergrduate and graduate courses in intercultural communication, interracial communication, and rhetorical theory. I am also Co-Principal Investigator of the Virtual Martin Luther King, Jr. Project with Dr. Victoria Gallagher.
