I am a fourth year Ph.D. student hailing from Byron, Georgia whose historical interests include African American, agricultural, environmental, and southern history. My research focuses on African American extension work in the South during the 20th century and how the intersection of race, gender, and class during the Jim Crow era influenced the hierarchy and fieldwork within the Cooperative Extension Service.
