Research focus

My research interests focus on the information behaviors of African Americans, and the effectiveness of cultural heritage institutions (libraries, archives, museums) at meeting the needs of African American communities. I am also interested in information literacy, community informatics, social justice, community engagement, and diversity and inclusion.
