I am the Black Health Lead, and the program developer and Inaugural program director of the first MPH in the field of Black Health. I am an Assistant professor, a political scientist, therapist, and community health leader. I specialize in the areas of intersectionality and ethics in health; Black health, confronting anti-Black racism, resistance and empowerment centred praxis; transnational African/Black and Indigenous health; racialized health, gender and violence; Black families, healing and wellness, and anti-oppression/anti-colonial/decolonizing approaches to mental health. With extensive teaching experience in universities, colleges, and in social service organizations and community settings, I have particular expertise in critical health theories and social justice health policy development and implementation. I prioritize critical and creative approaches to knowledge production that reflect the experiences and aspirations of African/Black diasporic, migrant, refugee, and transnational Indigenous communities. My scholarship contributes to critical race theory by examining how factors such as Indigeneity, gender, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, (dis)ability, religion/spirituality, transgenerational connections, and historical and contemporary intersectional violence impact African/Black communities health and wellness, by centering community resistance through innovative decolonizing health practices, including art based practices.
