I received my B.A. in English and Critical Race & Ethnic Studies from the University of Chicago in June of 2022. My senior thesis explores the relationship between literary aesthetics and racialized subjectivity in the works of Audre Lorde. My greatest privilege as an undergraduate was the opportunity to learn from those outside the University, especially the activists at Southside Together Organizing for Power (STOP), a community group organizing for housing reform, police justice, and equitable access to mental health care. I currently serve as an oral history research assistant for the Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley House in West Woodlawn.
I’m honored to join the RDI team, where I will provide event support and help to develop a communication strategy which centers accountability within and beyond the University. Recognizing that the history of the Academy in general and the University of Chicago in particular is intimately entangled with colonization and racial violence, RDI is committed to fostering ongoing dialogue with the communities to which we are answerable. If you have reflections on how RDI can better meet these commitments, please reach out.
