I am a historian of the twentieth-century United States. My research and teaching unite Black feminist analysis and critical race studies to explore histories of gender, sexuality, and race; law enforcement and the state; and social and political movements in the modern United States. Currently, I am writing a history of race and sexual policing between the fall of Prohibition in the 1930s and the triumph of broken windows policing, or mass misdemeanor policing, in the 1980s.
