WELCOME


Welcome to my personal web site, where I share some of my research, writings and other professional interests and accomplishments.  Trained in both the humanities and social-behavioral sciences, I have had a rich and diverse career as practicing psychologist, sociologist, community activist, and academic.  As a child growing up in the pre-Civil Rights south, I was blessed with the sense of calling so many Africana children received: "Boy, you are gonna be a preacher…" and "Son, you are a little preacher…" Years later, after teaching at a variety of institutions and across diverse disciplines, I have come to realize that the metaphor "little preacher" has been the architectonic of my philosophy and practice of teaching, as well as my clinical work and community service.  That is, I have always felt my life as both a "calling" and a responsibility to witness "uplift."
