As associate professor and chair of the Department of Psychology at Livingstone College, my work includes research in cultural identity, dating violence prevention, hip hop/rap, and conflict resolution at community forums and professional conferences. I have over 20 years of teaching/research experience at historically Black colleges/universities; this longevity is attributed to my experiences as an undergraduate at Florida A & M University.
