“This book undoubtedly offers both theoretical and empirical gems to the sociology of race and inequality as well as to the study of the African diaspora in Latin America and beyond.”
In a national and global context where some consider it radical to affirm that “Black Lives Matter,” my research seeks to expose the numerous ways that white supremacy operates in families in the United States and Brazil. As an Assistant Professor of Sociology with a joint appointment in the Institute for the Study of Latin America & the Caribbean at the University of South Florida, my broad areas of speciality include race, gender, colorism, emotions, family, and modern slavery. In addition to my global research, I enjoy organizing academic experiences for students that foster global citizenship and positively impact global communities.
All the best,
