I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of African American History at the University of Oregon, where I am working to complete my book manuscript. Dirty Capital: Vice Police, Nuisance Property, and the Long War on Drugs in Philadelphia is under contract with the University of North Carolina Press for inclusion in the “Justice, Power, and Politics” series. It will trace the history of vice policing in Black Philadelphia from Prohibition to the contemporary War on Drugs, drawing from interdisciplinary urban studies scholarship, critical prison studies, and socio-legal perspectives on policing and punishment. Before my appointment at the University of Oregon, I was a Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of History and the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA. I received my Ph.D. in American Studies in 2021 from New York University’s Department of Social and Cultural Analysis.
