personal and professional interests.
My background is very diverse--my parents are from the
beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica, a country of sun-drenched beaches, warm
tropical breezes, and rich cultural heritage. In the 1960s, my parents
journeyed to England where I was born. We moved to the United
States in the early 1970s, where I was raised and have spent most of my life.
I earned my doctorate in criminology from Indiana University
of Pennsylvania. Presently, I am a Professor of Criminal
Justice in the School of Public Affairs at Penn State Harrisburg. Prior to
coming to Penn State, I taught at Coppin State University and the University of
Baltimore. I also served as a fellow at Harvard University's W.E.B. Du
Bois Institute for Afro-American Research. In recent years, I have also
served as an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Center for African American
Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
My current research projects focus on: race, ethnicity, and
crime; private security; and, criminology and criminal justice pedagogy.
Recent publications have appeared in a variety of criminal justice and black
