A graduate of Yale (BA, 1990) and Stanford (PhD, 1996), she teaches and writes about 20th–and now 21st century–American race relations. Her disparate body of work explores racial attitudes and race relations in the post-WWII United States and seeks to illuminate the barriers to racial justice that continue in the post-civil rights era.
