In a nutshell, what do you do?
My research and teaching centers on race, racism, and civil rights advocacy in the United States.
What are you working on right now?
I’m working on a book about my research on Arab, Muslim, Sikh, and South Asian American civil rights efforts.
Why do you love what you do?
As a professor at a liberal arts college, I am very fortunate to work with great students, learning about and discussing issues that I believe are important.
How did Albion help you get there?
The great professors I met at Albion, especially Dr. Len Berkey, were excellent teachers and scholars. In many ways, they were role models for me. I hope to one day feel like I’m able to live up to their example.
For me, Albion ...
... provided a valuable space for learning about the world and about myself.
