Her first book, Talk With You Like a Woman: African American Women, Justice, and Reform in New York, 1890-1935 (University of North Carolina Press, 2010) received the 2011 Letitia Woods Brown Book Award from the Association of Black Women Historians and honorable mentions from the 2011 John Hope Franklin Prize from the American Studies Association and the 2011 Darlene Clark Hine Prize from the Organization of American Historians. Her new book project, “The Case of Hannah Elias: Interracial Intimacy and Civil Rights in Turn-of-the-Century New York,” interrogates the trajectory of a covert, consensual interracial relationship that ultimately precipitated murder, scandal, and civil rights protest.
