PhD, University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

These days, I come as a post-civil rights activist; one who balances teaching, research, and service in the creation of a live conversation about equality with those who gather within the sound of my voice.  As an academic leader and activist in the Diversity Movement of the twenty-first century, I stand in the classroom and within the community walls to speak of the equality and freedoms of a democracy charging the air we breathe.  I understand how the discourse not only pulls us together, but becomes our articulate collective authentication to change the world.  For more than 25 years I have been a cultural voice for equality and justice; teaching, writing, and speaking out against racism, sexism, classism, and organized inequities of all kinds.  A product of Texas’ racism, sexism, and classism, a Black woman’s voice, born in the struggle in Texas against racism in America during the Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s.  My life and work supports the concept of community based culture with an enlarged capacity for mutual respect and care for humanity.
